KILL YOUR TIMID NOTION
On Tour: London, Bristol, Glasgow | Nov-Dec 2008
A step across the border between sound & vision
Your eyes see what, like 10 or 15 images a second; let’s say that’s 10Hz. Your ears can hear 15,000 Hz. Surely there must be something interesting in this incongruity.
KYTN is one of Europe’s leading festivals of sound and image. It’s staged annually at Dundee Contemporary Arts, but this year it’s also touring. It’s all about exploring the many different ways we navigate the borders, disparities and similarities between what we hear and what we see. It involves some of the great experimental artists, musicians and filmmakers of our time, and some of the not too distant future also. It features film developed as its projected, visual harmonics, jerry rigged 16mm projectors, movement without motion, absurd concrete poetry, your chance to inhabit 3 distinct points in time all at once and much more besides…
