Seeing Sound Symposium is an informal practice-led symposium at Bath Spa University exploring multimedia work which foregrounds the relationship between sound and image. It explores areas such as visual music, abstract cinema, experimental animation, audiovisual performance and installation practice through paper sessions, screenings, performances and installations.

Keynote Speakers include Jean Piché,  Myriam Boucher and Derek Holzer.


Presentations include:

 Rob Mullender – Bringing to Light the Voice Figures of Margaret Watts-Hughes

 This paper will discuss a recently discovered archive of audio-visual works, created in the late 19th Century by the Welsh singer and Philanthropist Margaret (Megan) Watts-Hughes. In attempting to measure the power of her voice, Watts-Hughes discovered that materials and sound can interact to form patterns – effects most commonly known through the work of Ernst Chladni in the late 18th Century, and Hans Jenny’s ‘Cymatics’ of the early 20th. Read more about Rob’s research on The Voice Figures of Margaret Watts-Hughes.
