NEWS – Sound / Image 2016

Von: Andrew Hill

Datum: Wed, 27 Jul 2016

Betreff: Sound / Image 2016

Sound / Image: exploring sonic and audio-visual practice.

Event dates – Saturday 12^th November and Sunday 13^th November 2016

University of Greenwich- Stockwell Street Building, Greenwich.

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.




Cornelia Lund is an art and media theorist and curator living in

Berlin. Since 2004, she has been co-director of fluctuating images


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


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.”
