/Sound is a tool for heightening consciousness and increasing intensity of the mind. It directed not to the intellect but to all the senses, the total integration of those sacred energies and forces that exist latent in all of us. It is the manifestations of forms in the universe. While the music is a sound you like, the noise is a sound you don't like or "understand". It is very subjective. But truth cannot be explained in ordinary logical systems, there are always other possibilities.
Ex Machina is a part of Electro Work Programs exploring the possibility of sound, mainly noise.

/ 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 idea of VJing came from art forms that deal with synesthetic experience of vision and sound. It created a certain challenge that audio and visual have to relate together in each section as well as the whole set.

People used to think video as decorations. However, the rise of visual performance in the new century has brought new dynamics to its practice. 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.
