Alex Fitch talks to Matt Hulse, curator of and contributor to ‘The Audible Picture Show’, a touring collection of short films without pictures, which features such film-makers as Andrew Kotting and the Brothers Quay. Alex and Matt talk about the art of foley work, the under-appreciation of sound in modern society, the joy of found footage and the use of sampled soundtracks to create evocative soundscapes.
There will be a retrospective of Matt’s work and a ‘showing’ of ‘The Audible Picture Show’ on Sunday 14th January 2007Â as part of The Halloween Society’s 4th Short Film Festival at the ICA. Please visit the sites below for more info.
