Art And Sound 2013

In an attempt to explore how the creative use of sound complicates the contained categories of sound /art /visual art /music /science /engineering, KHOJ organised a series of sound residencies. Through these, Art and Sound explored the ways in which aural experiences inform our inhabitation of spaces and ecologies.


About this edition

Sonic Art has moved into becoming an audio culture where musicians, composers, sound artists, scholars and listeners are attentive to sonic material; the act of listening and the creative possibilities open through sound recording, dissemination, transmission, and playback is transforming art production and the endless scope of sound and noise. This ‘culture of the ear’ has recently come to prominence as social scientists, anthropologists, and culture studies academics have started to notice and study sound as a marker of cultural difference and temporality.

Sound Art in India is a nascent, but emerging field. With more and more artists and musicians exploring the meaning of sound, a new language is being understood and redefined. The understanding of sound beyond music is leading to new experiments embodying new auditory sensibilities and awareness.

Curator: Charu Maithani
