Visible Bits, Audible Bytes presents a series of talks and a concert of experimental film and audio-visual works that champion the soundtrack and explore the relationship between sound and the moving image.
An afternoon seminar brings together three of the UK's leading practitioners to discuss their current work in restoring, creating and performing audio-visual works - Dr Joseph Hyde, Bath Spa University; Dr Mick Grierson, Goldsmiths College University of London; Dr Louise Harris, Kingston University.
