The Handbook will be slowly filled with articles written by invited artists and specialists, talking about their tools and ways of working. Some articles are introductions to tools, others are descriptions of methodologies, concepts and technologies. Continue reading

KUNST.EE – Sound Art Special

sound.jpgKUNST.EE Magazine – Estonian Quarterly of Art and Visual CultureHelikunsti eri / Sound Art Special [or download the PDF]: What is this that we call sound art? The medium of sound is elusive.

It wasn’t until the early 1990’s that the term “sound art” first started to surface commonly among papers and conferences and international festivals of music and art. Continue reading
