well so you want some basic sound to visual interaction, that can be done!
if you will have dark enough room with projector, it is totally possible and its not hard at all - because that is what vvvv knows best :)
go on - try to think of what exactly do you want to show on these projections, if its video from camera - Player would be your best option (it plays stacks of pictures) if its geometry, you can do your own rendering with 3d or 2d geometry
next step would be to imagine how it might look - do it in illustrator, photoshop, blender, or any other software of your choice, so we can better understand each other, and if you reach a certain point i can help you code it, its really not that hard :)
I kinda feel your pain bro, I study on art school in Slovakia, and few teachers we had for subject of interactivity have been total noobs and knew a lot less on the subject than I knew, so my classmates struggles with this like you do
this is for example one of the earliest things done in vvvv and its focused purely on visual generating from sound http://youtu.be/4y4Rweg21Dc
and believe me if you first use your skills in concepts, graphics design and interaction and after that focus on technical realization, it would only benefit you in future
