Welcome to HorizonVU Music
Forum for Creative Practice in Music Performance and Composition
HorizonVU Music provides a forum for curious minds with interests in music spanning multiple facets of creativity in performance and composition. Our network encourages the participation of persons dedicated to understanding the theories and practices of performance and composition as well as deepening our knowledge of cultural history, physical science and technology, social science, and philosophy.
HorizonVU Music represents the coming together of scholarly insights with practical hopes and dreams. Our horizons are a limit of our intellectual and physical capabilities as well as a dynamic, changing view toward the future. We think in terms of where we are today and the direction in which our musical compass points us.
The HorizonVU Music operates independently standing for intellectual curiosity, innovation and the love of music . We are serious persons having viewpoints – our VU-points (that is, Volume Units) and information we share are intended to invite conversation and collaboration in the spirit of affording enriched opportunities to express the art.
A small dedicated team founded HorizonVU Music in 2009. Since then, the company has re-shaped its mission and its objectives in line with its strengths.
