Practice-Led Research Symposium, Bath Spa University
Seeing Sound is an informal practice-led symposium exploring multimedia work which foregrounds the relationship between sound and image.
It explores areas such as visual music, abstract cinema, experimental animation, audiovisual performance and installation practice through paper sessions, screenings, performances and installations.
Seeing Sound 2013 took place on the 23rd and 24th November 2013. More information and documentation can be found here.
This year’s event had a focus on live performance, and in particular contemporary dance. Core to the programme were three highly collaborative performances: the award winning Hidden Fields, which combines cutting edge computing and quantum mechanics with stunning visualisation / sonification and contemporary dance, a brand new collaboration between computer animation pioneer Larry Cuba and choreographer Yolande Yorke-Edgell, and a performance by Bath Spa’s own Behaviour ensemble with visual artist Jon Piggott.
