Sound/Image Colloquium 2016

Sound/Image Colloquium: Exploring sonic and audio-visual practice

12-13 November 2016

The Sound/Image colloquium is interested in exploring the relationships between sounds and images, and the images which sounds can construct by themselves.

Through a series of complementary strands – talks, screenings, loudspeaker orchestra concerts – we will bring together artists and experts to investigate sound and sound-image phenomena.

This year we are delighted to invite both Cornelia Lund and Tim Howle to join us as special guests.


Call for Papers

We invite submissions on the following topics including, but not limited to:

  • Audio-visual composition
  • Visual Music
  • Interactive visual performance
  • Acousmatic composition
  • Sound and image relationships
  • Cognition and Perception of Sound / Image Correlates
  • Sonic image
  • Perception of sound.

Abstracts of 500 words are required to be submitted by completing a proposal form by 29 August 2016.


Call for Audio-visual Works

We invite composers and filmmakers to submit their audio-visual compositions for performance. Works should be no longer than 15 minutes in duration.

Fixed media works will be presented in our ‘Cinema’ space with 16:9 HD projection and 7.1 surround sound.

Live Performances will be presented in our Television Studio space.

Online links to the work should be submitted (soundcloud / dropbox etc.).

Please complete the submission form by 29 August 2015.


Call for Acousmatic Works

We invite composers to submit acousmatic compositions for performance. Works should be no longer than 15 minutes in duration.
