Call for papers: II International Conference Electroacoustic Winds 2017: SYNCHRESIS – Audio Vision Tales
13th-17th November 2017, University of Aveiro, Department of Communication and Art (DeCA), Aveiro, Portugal
DATE: 28/4/2017
The International Conference Electroacoustic Winds 2017: SYNCHRESIS – Audio Vision Tales is organised by the Center of Electroacoustic research (CIME), the Institute for Ethnomusicology – Research Center for Music and Dance (INET-MD), Research Institute in Design, Media and Culture (ID+) and CIC.Digital.
This conference seeks to establish bridges between music creation, Design & Soundscapes and New Media.
The eaw2017 SYNCHRESIS – Audio Vision Tales conference will focus on the relationship between sound and image which are two different languages within the multimedia art form.  The technological tools to improve this relationship are the main focus of the proposed symposium;  dialogical perspectives will gain center stage relevance and participants will be confronted with both technical-linguistic and aesthetic points of view, but also  discussions on how technology is enabling these two mediums to merge themselves, creating tools for manipulating and enhancing not only the artist creativity but also the audience’s immersion.
This audio-vision relationship has become the focus of studies of different authors throughout recent decades. However, in this field, as in others within the digital humanities realm, new assumptions and theories are created every time the technology overcomes its constraints and presents a new paradigm.
Design and soundscapes aims to discuss and mirror interactions and features between design, sound, silence and the potential to perceive space, place and time. Intending to enlarge the scope of the debate, Design and Soundscapes is an invitation to researchers, practitioners, performers to present theoretical frameworks and/or empirical studies within that topic.
