AudioKino: The AudioKino project presents work in which film, video and sound meet: In 2011, SoundFjord, the UK’s only gallery and research unit devoted to sound art, began in earnest to present an ongoing series of film and video works under the banner 'AudioKino' (SoundCinema): a platform to interrogate the nexus between sound and image (its concept and articulation) within cinema and new media practices.
Taking place in a variety of venues including art house cinemas, galleries and living rooms, AudioKino is an ongoing dialogue between cinematic and private space, and audience; and conceptual impetus and technology. Through this programme, SoundFjord endeavours to present adventures in ‘audiocentric’ cinema – a journey through objectivity and abstraction, documentary, fiction and everything in between. And at every step, paying particular interest to sound and score.
About the Film: Sound Aspects of Material Elements reveals how our sense of hearing can use non-linguistic signals to communicate, interpret and build relations to the world around us. Using sound as the primary signifer, the film shows a specific approach to the artistic use of sound, covering a three-year period of the authors personal research and collaborations with a number of close colleagues. The film documents in-situ processes of exploration and sonification of the landscape along with the numerous objects and structures found there.
About the Artist: John Grzinich (b.1970) has been working with sound as an artistic medium since the early 1990s. He lives and works in Estonia with MoKS a non-proft artist run space.
