Ever heard of sound design?
As the lines between artistic disciplines blur, more art schools are offering courses and majors in sound design.
In video, installations, performance work and even more traditional exhibits, music and or “sound” is an integral part of a visual art experience.
The link below will take you to an exciting new project and a great example. It’s an installation exchange between MassArt USA, and The University of Edinburgh. To explain it very simply, electronic boxes that play different sounds in response to shifts in the intensity of light will be mounted behind small one-way mirrors and hung from the ceiling. The audience will move through the room, where they can look at themselves and each other in the mirrors, but the sounds will change as they approach. Click the link to learn about the project and a little about the young artist spearheading the work.
Collaboration and exchange +interaction enliven artists and audience.
