Product Description

First issue of the contemporary art journal about sound, devoted to the complex relationships between visual and sound forms, both in contemporary art and history.
This first issue questions and challenges the often blurred boundaries between sound art and contemporary art presenting sound as a medium or simple referent. It also broaches the figurative dimension of sound through its pictorial, photographic and sculptural representations, as distinct – by way of their silence – from strictly acoustic and sonic considerations. Some articles explore its time-related dimension, especially through the recording factor and the exhibition format. All areas of interest which give a glimpse of the scope of the intermingled territories of sound and the visual arts.
