Visible Bits Audible Bytes – curated by Bret Battey from De Montfort University’s Music, Technology and Innovation Centre – returned in 2019, once again exploring how artists and musicians from around the world are using new technologies to animate imaginative audiovisual realities.
With the support of the EU Interfaces project, Visible Bits, Audible Bytes commissioned award-winning Montréal video artist and composer Myriam Boucher to premiere a new audiovisual composition and installation artwork at Phoenix as part of the screening.
This event was part of Interfaces, a Creative Europe project which aimed to inspire more people of all ages and demographics to experience contemporary music and sound art and learn to incorporate the European musical legacy in newly found idioms and contexts. De Montfort University’s Institute of Sonic Creativity was a leading partner, along with nine other European institutions.
