Sound/Image: Exploring sonic and audio-visual practice

The annual colloquium returns on the 12th & 13th of November, inviting artists, experts and performers to come together in exploration of the connections between audio and visual. 

The colloquium is curated by Andrew Hill, programme leader in Sound Design, and hosted by the Creative Professions and Digital Arts Department, and will provide a plethora of talks, screenings and live performances all aiming to understand the relationship(s) between sound and image.

This year, Sound/Image is proud to host special guests Cornelia Lund and Tim Howle.

Cornelia Lund is an art and media theorist and curator living in Berlin. Since 2004, she has been co-director of fluctuating images (www.fluctuating-images.de) a platform for media art and design with a focus on audiovisual artistic production.

Cornelia Lund is co-editor of Audio.Visual: On Visual Music and Related Media (Arnoldsche, 2009), Design der Zukunft (AV Edition, 2014), The Audiovisual Breakthrough (2015; http://www.ephemeral-expanded.net/audiovisualbreakthrough/) and the online platform Post-Digital Culture (http://post-digital-culture.org/).

Tim Howle is Professor of Contemporary music at the University of Kent. He is fascinated by the relationship between acoustic and electroacoustic forces and how these can be augmented with the inclusion of video. “Acousmatic music is a function of the recording process, however, video can be thought of in a similar way. Adding acousmatic music to experimental video offers an opportunity to re-evaluate the position of both art forms where ideas and technical means are hybridised.”
