*** This written interview will be in English only ***

Carol Vernallis is a key name for anyone interested in the music video as a form of artistic expression. By way of a brief introduction to the music video aesthetic, we asked her five questions that would shed light on the music video as a genre of its own.

Carol Vernallis teaches at Stanford University. Her book, Experiencing Music Video: Aesthetics and Cultural Context, published in 2004, was the first book to define a clear theory on how music, lyrics, and images can exist in relation to each other. It also gives a detailed analysis of music video content. Her second book, Unruly Media: YouTube, Music Video, and the New Digital Cinema, published in 2013, delves into the new media landscape of the music video that is YouTube. Carol Vernallis is also co-editor of The Oxford Handbook of New Audiovisual Aesthetics, as well as Transmedia Directors: Artistry, Industry, and New Audiovisual Aesthetics.

The panel will be available from March 22, 2021 at 12:00pm, on our Youtube, Facebook, and LinkedIn channels.

Carol Vernallis’s monograph Experiencing Music Video: Aesthetics and Cultural Context (CUP, 2004) is the first to articulate a theory of how music, lyrics and image can be placed in relation, as well as provide detailed analyses of individual videos. Her second, Unruly Media: YouTube, Music Video, and the New Digital Cinema (OUP, 2013), takes account of a new mediascape that is driven by intensified audiovisual relations. She is co-editor of Transmedia Directors and two Oxford Handbooks. Her The Media Swirl: Politics, Audiovisuality, and Aesthetics, and coedited Cybermedia: Explorations in Science, Sound, and Vision are near publication. She teaches at Stanford.
