listening.watching.speaking is a new reading group led by composer Richy Carey taking place over four evenings in January and February 2019; an informal space to discuss practical and theoretical approaches to sound-image relationships in contemporary artists’ moving image practices.
Each week the group will read a short text by sound-image theorists, such as Michel Chion, Trinh T. Minh-ha, Holly Rogers and Bernd Herzogenrath, before watching/listening to works from the LUX collection and discussing both through each other.
The readings will look at audiovisual concepts, such as modes of listening, the interval between looking and listening, and the materiality of image and sound. Selected reading material will also respond to the interests of the group as the sessions develop.
The aim is to create a supportive environment where participants can discuss their own practices, be introduced to some key texts and engage with different works from the LUX collection.
