SCREAM Festival 2011: Sounding Images

Camet Notre
Video still from 'Camet Norte' (2009), by Elsa Justel.

Co-presented with the Southern California Resource for Electro-Acoustic Music and NewTown.
Electroacoustic music merges seamlessly with electronically generated or enhanced imagery in this screening of 11 international works—a program that attests to the ongoing maturation of an electronic “inter-arts” that transcends disciplines, genres and geographies. Whether created through collaborations between artists and technicians at major art centers, or by digitally savvy individual artmakers in faraway outposts, these composites of sound and image share in common aesthetic imagination and skillful technique.

Sounding Images - A SEAMUS / New Town Collaboration

The sound composer I work with Adam Stansbie sent me an email a few weeks ago as he usually does notifying me 'Pollen' music by Adam Stansbie and video by Vishal Shah has been selected for screening again :) at an electroacoustic event. Inspiration Information for me to do some more independent work. Some info below.

The digital era has matured into an art form transcending disciplines, genres and geography, as seen in videos from eight countries. Within its incredibly disparate genres and styles Sounding Images’ works hold in common seamless meshing of electro-acoustic music and electronically generated or enhanced imagery. From multi-national collaborations by artists at major international art centers to auteurs Mac-garreted in outlying cultural urbs and oases come eleven works of aesthetic and technical excellence, united only in their innovation and diversity. Beyond signifying the nascent adulthood of electronic inter-arts, Sounding Images’ works are an optimistic microcosm for international interconnectivity.
