“Pursuit of the Unheard”

Supported by the Max Brand Archive

The Ars Electronica Festival is celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2009. Looking back on the festival’s musical history, we’re immediately struck by its extraordinary diversity: early electronic rock, play-along concerts featuring home-brew instruments, the Steel Symphony and the Steel Opera … Music is at the heart of this festival.

See this Sound – Sound-Image Relations in Art, Media and Perception

The project SEE THIS SOUND explores the past and present of the link between image and sound in art, media and perception.

SEE THIS SOUND reacts to this by presenting and discussing different realizations of contemporary art and art studies. The current fields of reference range here from pop culture to the theory of perception and media technology.
