Within the programming of

She Makes Noise 2023
19 Oct - 20 Oct 2023

Artist and filmmaker Valentina Alvarado Matos proposes a shared listening and viewing workshop in collaboration with electronic producer Dania.

Target audience: General public
Location: Torreón I
Price: 50€

When we generate images, do we take sound into account? Can listening to a sound make us think of a certain image? Audio extends and compresses the time length of a sequence.

This workshop proposes a reflection on texture, matter and form from the perspective of sound and image, in order to construct ideas and experiments that are centred on audiovisual perception. An exercise in “sound & vision” in which to listen, watch and experiment with different sound and filmic devices that invite us to think about the relationship between image and sound within the environment of formal experimentation and performance.

The two-day workshop comprises a theoretical part and another more active part, which includes tests and exercises designed to dynamise every aspect of the audiovisual relationship.

Participants are encouraged to bring music that they have produced or simply like to use as a background for visuals.

Delivered by: Valentina Alvarado Matos in collaboration with Dania.
