Turning CD's and its players into musical instruments. Creative, chance-based customisation of the circuits within electronic devices such as CD players, or the CD itself, to create new musical instruments or sound generators.Read More

'Experiment in F# Minor', is installed in the rear gallery of Luhring Augustine New York until June 11. On a large table sits a collection of bare speakers of all shapes and sizes. Light sensors are inlaid into the edge of the table and as the viewers move around the room, their shadows cause the various sound and instrumental tracks to fade up and overlap, mingle and fade down. Numerous viewers in the room create a cacophony of musical compositions that vary according to where the audience walks or how many people are in the room. When the space is empty, the table fades to silence.

Can a lump of iron ore become an electric coil, and transmit sound through a stone? The installation 'Skala' was made for the Palm Room in the Plant House of Bergen´s Botanical Gardens. On the path between the palms, a copper-wound iron meteorite laid in a display case of wood, glass and metal. Sound signals were transmitted into the copper wire and then set off vibrations in the stone. The slight vibrations resonated in the metal plate on which it stood, and the sound became acoustically audible. The meteorite sent low-key sounds out into the space.

An exploratory exhibition on the propagation of sound in the human body. 'On the sensations of tone' brings together three artists where sound, listening, the ear of the listener and the composer are essential elements in their work. This approach evokes the theories of Hermann Ludwig von Helmholtz (1821-1894) in his seminal work 'The physiological theory of music based on the study of auditory sensations', published in 1865 in Germany. It pays attention to the propagation of sound in the ear and researches the ear as an essential element to compose music.Read More
Vicky Browne is an installation artist who utilises everyday objects such as Walkmans, iPods, clothing and furniture to comment on Western systems of consumption and production. Browne often manipulates the familiar using traditional craft methods (such as knitting or weaving), and she regularly employs found or produced sound. The Sound Forest is dense with vibrations and finding your way through the foliage will leave you awed and increasingly aware of the world around you. #VickyBrowne #Firstdraft #SoundArt #SoundSculpture #ContemporaryArt #ExperimentalArt #MusicSculptureRead More
Street sound interventions to stumble across. Sounds who are left behind in public space. Transient in nature, lasting only until the battery ran out, or until someone vandalised or stole them. The MiMA in Brussels recently opened, a new museum dedicated to street art, whilst last year a new museum dedicated to electronic music was announced for Frankfurt. The emergence and formalisation of these once-marginal genres of art lead us to look at their fusion and their history. #MrUnderwood #StreetArt #SoundArt #ContemporaryArt #TechArt #ExperimentalArt #InstallationArt #MiMARead More
An exhibition of Charlotte Moorman and the Avant-Garde in the 1960s–1980s. She was a groundbreaking, rule-bending artist, musician, and advocate for the experimental art of her time. She had an important role in the history of sound art and music related contemporary art. This exhibition replaces the indelible image of Charlotte Moorman (1933-1991)—playing the cello topless save for a pair of strapped-on miniature television sets—with a more complex but equally powerful portrait of the girl from Little Rock, Arkansas, who metamorphosed into a seminal and barrier-breaking figure in music inspired performance art and an impresario of the postwar avant-garde.
