Sound to Image In Folkestone
Listening & Improvisation Workshop and Performance

For Profound Sound 2020 festival, Folkestone

The Brewery Tap
Sat 22nd Feb 2020 15:00 to 18:00 - 19:00

To dissolve in sound the rigidity of the temporally and spatially fixed image into a field of tension of the possible and the real. (Theodor Adorno, 1981)

A continuation of my investigation in using images as scores, exploring what they can elicit for us through breathing, sound, words and gesture.

In this workshop, we activate and practice the sound(ing) image score (2017) which invites us to tune into and release the silent speech of images, through a metaphorical breathing in of what one sees and literal breathing out of what this has triggered in us; sounds, words, gestures, textures, emotions, sensations, memories ... We do so through a series of simple exercises relying on free improvisation and deep listening practices.
The workshop may be of interest to artists, photographers, musicians, improvisers, writers, amateur or professional, interested in the interplay between text, image, and sound.The workshop is followed by a one-off collective public performance where some of the projected images worked with, were reconnected to their silent speech.
