-What do you see of what you hear?
 
Using the idea of film as a device through which to look at our surroundings, the workshop will delve into how sound may be used to generate fiction, manipulating our bodies and directing our gaze in order to affect the way we look at ourselves and the world around us. Examples from film, literature, and contemporary art will be used to discuss strategies of identification and distancing, using, among others, sound design, text, and vocal aesthetics.Lecturer: Alex Reynolds
