IM MEDIA MUSIC VIDEO

Music Videos are any visual media that is shown along with a song. The music video itself is a fairly new form of art. The first music video was shown on MTV (which for last decade or so wouldn’t be caught dead showing a music video – and yet still have music video award shows) in the early 80’s and since then has become an extremely popular art form due to its experimental nature and its natural pairing with music that boosts the experience of watch the visual display. Although music videos themselves are a fairly new form or media – the idea of combining a visual narrative along with music has been with us for centuries in the form of musical theater. Some of the more ambitious music video projects blur the line between musical theater and music video, specifically Michael Jackson’s “thriller” and Kanye West’s “Runaway” video.

Eventually, other TV stations popped up to also show music videos (VH1 and BET to name a couple). However, Youtube has come along and added a new avenue for viewing music videos. No longer must an artist get major distribution so that they’re videos are played on a major network. Now their music can be promoted to the world via the internet on Youtube or some of the other music video devoted websites or even their Facebook or personal website. Youtube has given anyone the ability to express and promote themselves and has pushed the creative and experimental boundaries of the art form.
