Lecture-performance: Michel Chion
The voice in cinema, or the acousmêtre and me
Join us for a rare opportunity to hear from one of the pioneers of audio experimentation.
Michel Chion is a composer, filmmaker, historian, writer and arguably the world’s foremost thinker on sound in cinema. In this lecture-performance, he traces a history of the ‘acousmêtre’, a term he coined for the mysterious off-screen voice in cinema, through his own work and that of Robert Bresson, Alfred Hitchcock, Fritz Lang, Hans Jürgen Syberberg and Spike Jonze.
This event is organised in partnership with Liquid Architecture and is supported by the Institut Francaise.
