Professor Simon Shaw-Miller will be one of the presenters at the summer workshop on Hearing, Seeing and Imagining: Music and the Visual Arts taking place August 28-31 at Herstmonceux Castle, East Sussex.
His talk, Trompe l’oeil, Cubism & Violins: Representing Music, will be part of a meeting that will explore ‘the imaginative, interactive worlds of music and the visual arts’. Themes to be considered will include: sound and the moving image; the neural basis of musical and visual imagery; representation of visual art in music and music in the visual arts and synaesthesia.
The event will bring together visual artists, musicians, neuroscientists, historians and psychologists in a series of discussions, performances and workshops in the beautiful setting of Herstmonceux Castle.
There are three student scholarships available, covering the registration fee, meals and accommodation. For more information about this scholarship, see this page or contact Dr Kate Overy or Dr Karen M Ludke.
This workshop is organised by the Institute for Music in Human and Social Development (IMHSD), Edinburgh College of Art, the University ofEdinburgh, in collaboration with Queen’s University, Canada and the Bader International Study Centre (BISC)
