Sound is motion. Every sound we hear originates from the vibration of
an object, which results in waves that are propagated through the
particles of a given medium. These waves trigger a chain reaction in
our ears, creating electrochemical impulses our brain interprets. These
films make this everyday process palpable, while also complicating it.
WARNING: Arnulf Rainer contains flickering and strobe effects. Those
who become disoriented from such effects, as well as those suffering
from photosensitive epilepsy, may be at risk.
Guest speaker: Professor Gary Kendall, Department of Music Technology,
