Hello Spectrites,

Perhaps this program of Australian audiovisual and experimental music may be of interest people who are in or near Bourges, France.  

Listening Visions

Curated by Gail Priest
Presented at Rencontres Bandits-Mages
Bourges, France
Friday November 14, 9pm

Listening Visions is a screening and listening program highlighting the work of innovative Australian sound and media artists. Interspersed between short audiovisual works are pure aural experiences, allowing the audience to contemplate the powerful effect vision has on hearing while also appreciating sound as a non-retinal medium.

All the works occupy the space of the abstract (inorganic) rather than figurative (natural). The video works are chosen for their tight interlinking of sound and image, preferencing concrete data conversions over associative visual interpretations. The sound pieces share connections in their use of often harsh, texture-driven impulses that accumulate to create non-figurative though no less dramatic sonic environments. The intention is to loosen the grip of figurative images on the immersive listening experience.
