Sound Art Matters
The current art field is full of sound: audible and inaudible, infrasound, ultrasound, sonifications of data, sound machines, field recordings, sound installations, digital sounds, biological sounds, sound walks, sounds from instruments, sounds of voices and so on. Sound art is a diverse field. It comprises a wide range of different artistic practices in which sound is a central element and occurs in a variety of formats and contexts, crossing conventional boundaries between art genres and institutions. It is released on records and distributed online, it is exhibited at museums and galleries, and it is performed at festivals for new music, sound art and media art, in night clubs, and in open public spaces. Despite this abundance of sonic expressions, sound art is still, as Christoph Cox noted in 2011, ‘profoundly undertheorized’.
