Tennessee Archive of Moving Image and Sound

PRESENTED ON AUG 16, 2018
IN KNOXVILLE @ VOL 28
In feature films, documentaries, news footage and home movies, moving images offer unique and rich records of our cultural history. Due to the ephemeral nature of these artifacts, however, we can’t take their longevity for granted. Eric Dawson and John Morton offer a look inside the Knox County Public Library’s audio-visual archive, and examine the importance of film archiving as a means of preserving our past.

Moving Audiences

BY JONATHAN EATO
@ VOL 17 ON OCT 30, 2018

Site specific', 'promenade performance' and 'immersive theatre' are terms liberally sprinkled through arts marketing materials, with varying relationships to the actuality. How about an 'immersive roast potato pop-up experience' anyone? You think Jonathan Eato is joking...

But whether it's the latest show from the internationally acclaimed Punchdrunk theatre company, or a well-known oven chip manufacturer jumping on the bandwagon, there are a number of common questions that experience makers are confronted with. Why are audiences being asked to move around? (aka what's wrong with a comfy theatre seat?) How can we move audiences without resorting to sat-nav type instructions or relying on unpredictable wanderlust? And once audiences are out of their seats, what's the pay off?

Jonathan (sound designer for Hannah Bruce & Company) will attempt to answer some of these questions, and make the case for resonance and reverberation as key tools in the immersive experience.
