> DESCRIPTION

In Speak Memory, Vladimir Nabokov reminisces about ‘mute lips serenely moving in forgotten speech’, or associates the shrill crying of a little child with the colour white. This programme of recent film and video works explores the potential of sound as suggestion, reverberation and memory.

In response to the tradition of visual sound in experimental film this screening presents a selection of recent works, which employ the means of imagery, rhythm, shape, colour, and movement to create visual compositions that resonate as sound and music in our eyes and minds. Through sound suggestive experiments the works provoke unusual cognitive pairings and synaesthetic sentiments that propel sensory cross fertilization. The evocative visuals trigger sonic compensations that resonate as phantom sounds, mnemonic echos and synaesthesic phenomena.

The programme includes films by Ian Helliwell, Charlotte Prodger, Florian and Michael Quistrebert, Steve Roden, Richard Sides and Jennifer West.
