Thomas Gardner & Salomé Voegelin - Colloquium: Sound Art-Music
Declares the relationship between sound art and music. “colloquial”: spoken and accessible, rather than locked behind disciplinary boundaries.
In 2012, Thomas Gardner and Salomé Voegelin hosted a colloquium, entitled “Music – Sound Art: Historical Continuum and Mimetic Fissures”, at the London College of Communication, University of the Arts London. This colloquium dealt with the current fervent debate concerning the relationship between sound art and music.
This book proposes the opening of the colloquium to a wider readership through the publication of a decisive range of the material that defined the event.
“The act of listening is a complex web of interconnected behaviour and mental manoeuvring between music, pure sound and historical context. This book is an important tool to negotiate the gap between the history of music and the wider panorama of sonic art.” (Anne Hilde Neset, writer, broadcaster and artistic director, nyMusikk, Oslo)
