Sound-Image Colloquium Sound-Image Conference

SOUND/IMAGE: Exploring sonic and audio-visual practice

10-12 November 2017

The Sound/Image colloquium explores 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 Yves Daoust, Holly Rogers and Bret Battey as special guests for this third instalment of SOUND/IMAGE.
