Seeing Sound

commonsPractice-Led Research Symposium,
Bath Spa University (UK)

Seeing Sound 4 took place on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th April 2016.
The website offers information on the complete programme – please see 2016 menu above.

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 4 took place at Bath Spa over the 9th and 10th of April 2016. It represented a move away from the winter months, and a physical move also – although still hosted on our idyllic Newton Park campus, the event was hosted in our new state-of-the art Commons building. We made full use of the two-storey MediaWall that stands at its centre in a programme foregrounding video synthesis and expanded cinema.

Full information on previous events – in 20092011, 2013 and 2014 – is also maintained here.
