Description

To challenge ourselves artistically, we must challenge our existing notions of art. In the case of the sonic arts we must move beyond the frameworks in which we perceive sound. Attempting to only interpret sonic art and sound through a musical lens limits our understanding of art as a whole. The are many other meritorious forms of art the make use of sound and challenge our notions of art and the establishments in which they reside. This is no more obvious than in the ideals of anti-art movements such as Futurism (especially Russolo's "The Art of Noise") and Post-Dada Fluxus; and modern Sound Collage and Noise "musics." These art forms and movements actively challenge, and often transcend, traditional frameworks for music and make use of non-musical sound. Understanding other ways in which sound can be used and the contexts it can be used gives us a broader understanding of and appreciation of art outside of the visual and musical. This presentation will explore the commonalities amongst the aforementioned establishments and will highlight intersections in the use of non-musical sound and in what ways it is effectively manipulated.
