Globus Hystericus of is a piece of audio-visual art that utilises music and video media in an equitable way. The principles of acousmatic music are extended to incorporate parallel ideas found in video art. It is the 6th piece in a series of collaborations between composer Tim Howle and the video artist Nick Cope of the University of Sunderland.
The first performance of Globus Hystericus was 23rd and 24th November, 2013 at ‘Seeing Sound’ a practice-led research symposium held at Bath Spa University.
Seeing Sound encompasses multimedia work which focuses on the relationship between sound and image. It also explores areas such as visual music, abstract cinema, experimental animation, audiovisual performance and installation practice through paper sessions, screenings, performances and installations.
