The screening presents a strikingly diverse set of pieces from artists around the world who responded to the festival’s call for works. This includes abstract and real-world imagery, surround-sound works, experimental sound synthesis, colour-field artworks, and more.
The papers session presenters are postgraduate students at De Montfort University’s Institute for Sonic Creativity.
