/ VJ / VISUAL JOCKEY / creates or manipulates visuals in realtime through technological mediation in synchronization to music. It implies realtime processing material from storage media such as tapes, disks, video, still images, live camera input, or computer generated visuals.

The availability and affordability of new consumer-level technology allowed many more people to get involved into VJing. This sense of collective then translated from the virtual world onto physical spaces and becomes apparent through numerous festivals with strong focus on VJing.
