Treating of artistic practices that visualize the previously invisible, Lev Manovich writes "I often find myself moved by these projects emotionally. Why? Is it because they carry the promise of rendering the phenomena of the human senses into something that is within our reach, something visible and tangible?... Data visualization art is concerned with the anti-sublime". Thus Manovich raises the spectre of the category traditionally posed as the 'anti- sublime', the Beautiful...

Sound and Vision will screen a number of short works that use a range of techniques to integrate and transform music within digitally animated works. Whether or not these works are abstract or generative, all of them possess the unsettling affective power that many recent works of visualization share.

Though many of the screened artists have taken advantage of the possibilities online distribution and exhibition, on the night the works will be featured on a large projection screen with PA, in comfortable surrounds, and with a reasonably-priced bar in operation!

Confirmed films include:

'Rootsnine' by Monkeymen
'Esign' by Chris Larkee
'What is that' by Run Wrake
'The Peace of Video' by Effekt
'Berlin'/'Trioon 1' Dienestelle/Karl Kliem.
