Sound/ Image Colloquium 2016 – Call for papers

Sound / Image: exploring sonic and audio-visual practice.
Event dates – Saturday 12th November and Sunday 13th 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 (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.”
