Events 2nd June 2016

CDE students Oliver Gingrich and Sean Soraghan and CDE Supervisor Alain Renaud, are taking part in the fourth festival of Leaning to be held at Bournemouth Universityfrom Saturday 25 to Wednesday 26 June 2016 .  As part of the Analema Group, they will be presenting KIMA.

KIMA: participatory art, exploring sound and vision

Centre for Digital Entertainment and Analema Group

11am – 5pm (Sat, Mon, Tue, Wed)

Talbot Campus, Bournemouth University

Drop-in/art and theatre event

KIMA - meaning ‘wave’ in ancient Greek (‘kyma’) - interprets music as an interplay of light and form, it is an artistic quest for a new reading of sound. It uses mathematical equations of cymatics – sound waves creating patterns on matter to present sound in a visual way. KIMA allows audiences to explore the relationship between sound and vision interactively. Launched at the Festival of Learning in 2014, KIMA has now evolved into a fully participatory, real-time environment which presents sound as form, colour, light and geometry. Using their voices, the audience will be invited to step inside the piece to contribute to a growing soundscape, both sonically and visually as part of a growing open forum.
