Media Artists Chris J King and Alexander Peverett will present a workshop on hands on video techniques influenced by McLaren.
The themes in McLaren’s work of drawn sound and visual music were expanded by later artists using electronic video and video synthesis. The workshop will include an introduction to both the historical and technical aspects of electronic video work as well as the construction of a simple circuit and experimentation with video feedback. Be prepared for vivid colours, frenetic sounds and dancing shapes! The cost includes all the parts to make your circuit to take away and play with as well as mirrors to manipulate video feedback and a small publication containing all the information covered in the workshop.
McLaren the Musician is a series of events exploring the legacy of Scottish born animator, Norman McLaren (1914–1987). In association with Seeing Sound, Bath Spa University. Part of MCLAREN 2014.
