Sounds can evoke many different things for different people, even when the sounds are not intentionally referential. In this performance, abstract sound materials evoke for the sound artists visual sensations while works with video on the program suggest symbiotic connections between their visual and auditory elements. Sound Visions features The Inevitability of Objects performed by Ian Jarvis, sound art works by Sarah Peebles, Linda Antas and Joao Pedro Oliveira, as well as screenings of works by VTR (Wiktor Podgorski) and John Kamevaar.
