The Fundamentals of Sonic Art & Sound Design
Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing PLC
This book introduces a subject area that will be new to many: the sonic arts. The application of sound to other media (such as film or video) is well known and the idea of sound as a medium in its own right (such as radio) is also widely accepted. However, the idea that sound could also be a distinct art form by itself is less well established and often misunderstood. The Fundamentals of Sonic Arts & Sound Design considers new and radical approaches to sound recording, performance, installation works and exhibitions. It looks at the history and development of this subject area and examines of the wide range of practices that currently come under the heading of a??sonic artsa??. The book also visits the worlds of established sonic artists and sound designers in order to cement an understanding of this subject matter. The Fundamentals of Sonic Arts & Sound Design introduces, describes and begins the process of defining this new subject and provides a starting point for anyone who has an interest in the creative uses of sound.
