PMP is an audio-visual collective based in Singapore that focuses on the synaesthetic experience where sound and visuals interact in real time, steering away from the notion that audio and visuals are often the by-products of one another. Started in 2009 by Ivan, Felix and Bin, PMP’s music takes the form of minimal electronic music that fuses microsound, glitches and the sound of acoustic instruments. Visually, it is highly distinctive with generative visuals that reacts or controlled in real time. (PMP)

Venetian Snares: Szamar Mada (2005) by David O'Reilly contains a memorable section where sound and image suddenly cut to a silent blue screen with flickering computer code that makes you think that the equipment you're watching it on has just died. That screen then twists and morphs back to the animation to appropriately frazzled sounds. That was the last animated music video O’Reilly made, although his reel reveals a cluster of short films produced since, their marked stylistic difference to each other suggesting his desire to experiment with animation techniques and visual style.
