New Zealand's TransAcoustic Festival

Trans-Acoustic is a three day Festival where the centuries-old desire to fuse sensory impressions together is being given an experimental platform. Image generated to sound is now common practise, however TransAcoustic Festival will be examining the unique interface that results from the transformation of image or optical information into sound. Seeking to underline the acoustic perspective in a predominately visual culture, the Festival offers an inspiring synaesthetic experience to the public with seminars, performances and screenings on the 8th, 9th, 10th and 11th December 2005 at The Kenneth Myers Centre and the Odeon Lounge. contact info@transacoustic.org.nz for information or visit the website @ http://www.transacoustic.org.nz
