Sound Art Scrapbook

From August until the beginning of November 2013, MoMA will be hosting “Soundings: A Contemporary Score,” their first ever exhibition of sound art. According to Barbara London’s introductory essay, the exhibition

Features recent work by sixteen young artists … [who come from around the world] and have a broad understanding of art, architecture, performance, telecommunications, philosophy, and music. … [Across mediums,] listening and hearing remain central to their practices.

Going through the samples available on the exhibition website and the preview of the catalog Soundings: A Contemporary Score which includes London’s essay outlining the emergence of sound art as an art form since the 60s, I wanted to gather together some of the media mentioned in the essay as well as some additional samples from the 16 artists (Camille Norment, Tristan Perich, Susan Philipsz, Florian Hecker, Richard Garet, Haroon Mirza, Christine Sun Kim, Marco Fusinato, Luke Fowler, Toshiya Tsunoda, Jana Winderen, Hong-Kai Wang, Sergei Tcherepnin, Stephen Vitiello, Jacob Kirkegaard and Carsten Nicolai) contributing work to the show. This will follow a somewhat chronological order, but in general this is very rough.
