Seeing Sound 2

iPhoto slideshow as MP4 and ‘script’ as PDF of a presentation at Seeing Sound 2, Bath Spa University, UK on 29th and 30th October 2011.

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.

Although my presentation at Seeing Sound 2 was filmed by the event team, I haven’t yet followed up to see if I can get a copy of it to put online via Vimeo.

In the interim I’ve output a movie of a slightly more refined version of my slideshow and have produced a ‘script’ of the ‘talking to slides’ presentation I gave – reconstructed from memory, my presentation notes and also some subsequent research and writing. While it lacks the spontaneity of the original presentation, it’s probably more erudite though it’s also much longer because I’ve since included plenty of things I probably didn’t mention.

The thumbnail guides and the MP4 are complete… but to avoid duplication of text I’ve:

  •  linked to rather than included my ‘A Visual Music Manifesto’ which seems to deserve its own post –;
  • not included text for the final section on my prototype analogue tonoscopes. Initially I thought my working journal entry on ‘Experimental Development’ might provide the basis for this section – but I’ve ended up documenting and critiquing my studio experiments in far more depth than I was able to do in my presentation so it too is a separate post –
