Sound/ImageThe relationship between sound and image will be explored at a University of Greenwich event next week.

The Sound/Image colloquium will bring together artists and academics to investigate the way these two senses interact with each other. It takes place on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 November at the university's Stockwell Street building in Greenwich town centre.

Curated by Dr Andrew Hill, pictured, Lecturer in Sound Design and Music Technology, this is the university's second such event. Building on the success of last year, it will feature talks, screenings and live performance. 

Andrew says: "Sound/Image is an opportunity to open our doors to colleagues, fellow artists and creatives to share ideas and discuss practice in audiovisual media.

"We are delighted to invite experts and creatives from around the world to visit Greenwich, to present their work and to engage in discussion. It is a testament to the sound image research group in the department of Creative Professions & Digital Arts that we are able to attract such a rich field.

"We are excited to be forging the way as a global centre for prioritising audiovisual practice, and about the opportunities that this strong research culture brings to our students."

Keynote speakers are Cornelia Lund and Tim Howle. Cornelia is an art and media theorist and curator living in Berlin. Tim is Professor of Contemporary Music at the University of Kent.

Contributors will be coming from around the world to take part in what promises to be a real celebration. For more details and ticket information:
