WHAT IS SOUND ART

Sound art (n):

Sound compositions inspired by and created for visual art. These creations support artwork they were inspired by, and are played in conjunction with the gallery or museum installation.

These pieces utilize every day sounds blended with musical instruments chosen to emphasize unseen aspects of the art.

“Working with sound in conjunction with visual art allows me to explore sound for what it is – sound! Compositions without the constraints of a musical modality, yet not altogether rejecting known forms or instrumentation. This allows me the freedom to compose as a painter paints a canvas. To me, the sound of a garage door closing or a noisy restaurant is as interesting as a musical composition. I hear sound as I see visual art, as art.”
