Before then though:
THE LIGHT & SHADOW SALON presents!
by THE SCHOOL OF SOUND
25 November 2010
The Horse Hospital, London
It is rare to listen as a group. Whether at a concert or the theatre, in a cinema, facing some sort of screen or out on the street, we have images to keep our hearing company.
This is an opportunity for an audience to listen, together, without pictures. To immerse themselves in unfamiliar worlds and strange stories; to confront unexpected emotions, feelings, impressions; to share the unseen with those around you – all through sound. Narrative, abstract, radio, sound art – LISTENING! extends from documentary to the surreal, focusing particularly on the voice.
Selections by Scanner, Piers Plowright, Alan Hall, Trevor Wishart, John Wynne, Antonin Artaud, Stan Freberg, the Firesign Theater, Werner Cee, Glenn Gould and others. With Larry Sider, Mark Peter Wright and Annabelle Pangborn in discussion.
Doors open at 7pm, LISTENING! begins at 7:30 sharp

The Light & Shadow Salon is a place for artists, writers and audience to meet and share ideas about the past, present and future of the moving image in all its forms. The Salon is a place for exchange, interaction and cross-pollination and it welcomes active contributions and interventions from all its participants.
DECONSTRUCTING THE SOUNDTRACK:
A Seminar Series in Association with the London Film School
Saturday 11th & Sunday 12th December 2010
These seminars are aimed at those working in screen-based media, and offer three perspectives on the use of sound and music in filmmaking.
Experts Larry Sider, Annabelle Pangborn and Stephen Deutsch will each deliver a half-day seminar demonstrating the interrelationship between sound, music, image and story. The programme will include a discussion of strategies and concepts for working with sound and music, from pre- to post-production.
With particular relevance for directors, writers and producers as well as sound designers, editors and composers, the final session will be dedicated to discussing participants’ own projects.
