SPECIAL EVENTS

Hear-See-There

By: James Wyness and Richard Ashrowan

Running time: 01:00:00
Year: 2011
Country: United Kingdom

Synopsis:
An elemental clash of audio-visual experimentation between sound artist James Wyness and moving image artist and Creative Director of the festival, Richard Ashrowan. This special collaboration will accompany the Alchemy reception and party, with films of the four elements live-mixed, mashed, squished, mutated, layered and thrown through space in a visual improvisation sonically disturbed and agitated by layers of freely improvised field recordings. We’ve no idea what might happen, so just come along to hear-see it for yourself.
