GRIMPOSIUM: TRVE KVLT ARTS, FILMS, SOUNDS AND TEXTS IN EXTREME METAL
Dr. Vivek Venkatesh – Concordia University, Montreal, Canada
In this session, Vivek will present footage from web documentaries highlighting the first edition of Grimposium, which was held at Concordia University in Montreal, Canada in April of 2014. The event brought together a variety of participants including filmmakers, musicians, journalists and visual artists from the global extreme metal scene. For the next edition of Grimposium, Vivek is collaborating with writer, philosopher and visual artist Jason Wallin, as well as mobile media specialist, Owen Chapman – who is the creator of the audiomobile site – to enable global extreme metal scene members to record sounds and visuals which will be geotagged and used for an improvisational musical piece.
