Traditionally sound has supported a narrative with a moving image, and often is used to compliment
rather than direct that narrative:
What happens when the image is a digital still photograph?
And when ‘sound’ is ‘placed’ away from the image within an installation space?
If the projected image is of this/a moment can sound inject a ‘time’ element through its use of ‘direction’?
What does the audience bring to this?
Why put sound and a still digital photographic image together?
What can they give each other?
The main area explored is the question of how ‘sound’ changes our perception of the still-image. This is
largely unanswered.
The Abstract.
The Paper looks at and analysis’s the above in the following different ways:
The human voice, abstract sound, sound from objects, and the position of sound within an installation
space. This is discussed through sound and narrative, including sound directing a narrative. The use of
‘music’, electro acoustic artists and ‘abstract’ sound, looking at the difference in using sound that has a
visual link to the image to one that has no visual link, what affect this could offer the work? The
positioning of the sound and image with in the designated space, how this alters the received
The presentation of the paper will discuss these through looking at my own and other practitioners work
in sound art, installation, still and moving image. Asking more questions than giving answers.
