I wrote a one chapter contribution for the book A Critical History of Media Art in the Netherlands on the early developments of Live Cinema in the early 2000's.
The rapid explosion of digital culture in the 1990s and the rise of the internet brought about a group of audio-visual artists who grew up in a genre of post-digital art exploring the implications of media experiences. These artists would develop a concept called live cinema. VJ culture could often not provide a solid platform for their needs, since they felt they were constrained in their connection with the audience. Traditional VJ-ing in that sense is limited in motion compositions and was often perceived by its blandness in pattern or movement; disregarding temporal compositional awareness and just subordinately following the rudimentary beat of the music it was accompanying.
