Sound, Image and Place
Thu 24 October, 12 - 9:30pm, Huntly (multiple venues)
Sensory experience in understanding locality
A day exploring the history and future of soundscaping, bringing together sound, film and live music. With a range of scholars and creatives, we will consider current aural and visual connections as well as personal and archival narratives. Included in the programme are various positions from sonic post-carding to placing sound in the role of locality, as well as a (re)discovery of the town of Huntly and its satellite woodlands through soundwalking.
The event culminates in the premiere of Sylvan Ghosts / Viridian Echoes, by audio-visual composer Ela Orleans, based on her residency in Huntly and performed live by the artist with local musicians from the North-East of Scotland. Also showing will be new works by Dudendance from Scotland and Argentina with live musical performance by Fiona Soe Paing and Argentine composer Fabiana Galante.
