**NEW CLUB NIGHT** on Thursday 5th OCTOBER with **MICK GRIERSON**



Thursday October 5th, 6-8pm in the Seminar Rooms,

Ben Pimlott Building, Goldsmiths, University of London, New Corss, SE14 6NW



FREE, ALL ARE WELCOME



*Dr. Mick Grierson* is an experimental musician, film maker and researcher.
Also, a Research Fellow in the Creative and Performing Arts at Goldsmiths 
Electronic Music Studios



*AUDIOVISUAL COMPOSITION AND THE AVANT-GARDES *


Historically, experimental film practice has been perceived as belonging to a 
self-conscious avant-garde film making tradition. The tradition itself is well 
documented by those such as P Adams Sitney, A L Reese and Malcolm Le Grice. 
Importantly, it is easy to demonstrate that this type of practice is closely 
related to experimental sound practice with respect to process, material and 
aesthetics. In addition, many of those who are seen as key experimental film 
practitioners are themselves musicians, and/or involved in the sound arts. 
However, in Modernism and the Avant-gardes (Smith M 1998), Murray Smith 
highlights a major difference between the two disciplines. Traditionally, 
experimental and avant-garde sound practice has been supported by the arts 
establishment, whereas avant-garde film practice has not (at least, not to the 
same degree). This could be seen as contributing to a general decline in 
experimental avant-garde film and video throughout the late eighties and 
nineties. It can be argued that recent developments within the sound arts have 
had a significant impact on this situation. With the increase in computing 
power and availability of flexible programming tools (such as Max/MSP/Jitter), 
musicians and sound artists are able to more flexibly explore film and video in 
ways that are similar to the traditions of experimental and avant-garde film 
and video practice. What is more, this activity could be said to be 
contributing to the emergence of a new art based on structural aesthetic 
similarities between the two forms, similarities which are fundamental to an 
understanding of both experimental avant-garde film, and contemporary 
electronic music practice. Beyond this, supporting evidence from the fields of  
cognition and neuroscience is generating renewed interest in structural 
approaches to artistic theory and practice. With this in mind, this 
presentation will attempt to explore and demonstrate the practice 
of 'Audiovisual Composition' in the context of a possible continuation of avant-
garde traditions normally associated with modernism. It will feature a number 
of real-time demonstrations, and attempt to provoke debate on the nature of the 
practice itself.


Mick Grierson specialises in the area of real-time audiovisual composition and performance. In addition to working as an artist and researcher, 
he has extensive experience in the creative industries as an editor, composer, 
cameraman, sound designer, consultant and computer programmer. He is currently 
working on cognitive and structural approaches to contemporary computer aided 
audiovisual composition as part of the three year AHRC funded CAVE project.
