A History of Sound Art

About

Composed and Arranged by J Milo Taylor Mixed by Joel Cahen London-based sound artist Joel Cahen discusses his ongoing project Wet Sounds, underwater audio installations that exploit the sounds properties of water. Cahen introduces his new underwater installation, which will be staged at Temple Cowley Pools on Sunday 13 February at 4.30pm. An engaging sound collage presenting an unique historical documentation of Sound Art from the early 20th century to the present day, the composition weaves through different sound works throughout the century with narratives and ideas from some of the prominent artists in the field. It is an insightful retrospective into the craft of sound and its development as an artistic practice, from Edison's first sound film in 1895 to today. Commissioned by Newtoy. Supported by Oxford Brookes University, Oxford City Council and the PRS Foundation.
