A set of screenings from the (I)MAGESOUND(S) project, hosted by the Centre for Audio Visual Experimentation (CAVE).
(I)MAGESOUND(S) is a project that embraces an expanded experience of the cinematic, locating historical and contemporary artists work alongside the work of Jim Hobbs and Andrew Hill. The concept for the programme was originally born out of a research project/commission by Mono No Aware and The New York Public Library (NYPL) for the Performing Arts, as part of the annual Cinema Arts festival MONO X.
Working with the NYPL for Performing Arts film archive, contemporary individual artists, musicians and film distributors, the original project created a programme that brought together a variety of approaches to cinema, ranging from single screen films to more performative and expansive works. Its intention was to celebrate the relationship between image and sound, and emphasise the collaborative and generative possibilities between artists of different disciplines. In this spirit, Hobbs and Hill have chosen to invite additional musicians/artists from each city where the project will be performed. For the Leeds event, artist and University Academic Fellow Sam Belinfante will join to offer additional sonic elements throughout the evening.
The programme is divided into four movements: Nature Morte, Jim Hobbs (10 minutes) Score and (Re)Score, various artists (32 minutes) Projections, Andrew Hill (10 minutes) Vientos Fuertes (Strong Winds), Jim Hobbs (15 minutes).
This event is free to attend.
