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 will take place at Bath Spa over the 9th and 10th of April 2016. It represents a move away from the winter months, and a physical move also – although still hosted on our idyllic Newton Park campus, the event will be hosted in our new state-of-the art Commons building. We will make full use of the two-storey MediaWall that stands at its centre in a programme which foregrounds video synthesis and expanded cinema.
We are now open for submissions of papers, fixed media works and performance works and – as a special call this year – are looking for imaginative proposals for the MediaWall and atrium space of our new building. The deadline for all submissions is 29 January 2016.
