define the role of music.
Thomas Fonville is a thirty-something based in Rotterdam who started, while growing up, consuming as much cultural media as possible and is still doing so.
Thomas is constantly interested in popular and visual culture and permanently on the lookout for new and interesting area’s or events.
Besides this, Thomas has a habit of questioning the meaning of works of art or test the cultural relevancy of stated works. As a media studies graduate and a listener/fan of various kinds of music, with a keen eye for subcultures, Thomas tries to link music to its time period in order to define the role of music in a given culture.
With these views on the modern media landscape, the idea for “The audio from visual show” was born. In this show, Thomas tries to connect the musical backing of mainly “so-called” television shows to the context of the depicted visual scene.
In the meantime, Thomas teaches at the Willem de Kooning Academy and tries to enjoy as much good music and media as he can.
