Audio-Visual Archives Conference

The British Library, London, UK

Friday 17 – Sunday 19 July 2015

Collections of materials relating to audio-visual processes and products take various forms ranging from the multitrack reels of film-score recording sessions in the Trevor Jones Archive at the University of Leeds to the Muir Mathieson papers and other film-related manuscripts at the British Library to the scores and other documents in the Warner Brothers’ Archive in California. This two-day conference brings together scholars and students working with audio-visual archives to address some of the fundamental issues surrounding the use of such collections, and to explore current research in screen music that draws on archival resources. The conference is organised as part of the Arts and Humanities Research Council-funded research project The Professional Career and Output of Trevor Joneshttp://www.trevorjonesfilm.leeds.ac.uk, based at the University of Leeds, and is in association with the British Library.
