In this master class, we will get the chance to learn about the American filmmaker Amy Halpern’s creative procedures for using sound and silence in her films. As the title of the class indicates, in her synaesthetic work Halpern inflects the qualities of some media by using others. This is how the choice of silence has the same impact as that of sound (the filmmaker says she has created “very loud silent films”), while the images we see on the screen take on a new dimension thanks to the suggested sound from outside. Halpern will talk about the collages and sound resources she uses, with which the images, for example, are coloured by the political implications of audios encountered, or take on new nuances through playbacks. This is an illustrated session with practical examples of some of her works, complementing the programme we are dedicating to her filmography.
