Week 8: Sound Art Over Time

Thomas Edison – Phonograph


Marcel Duchamp – GAP Music


Kurt Schwitters – Sound Poetry

John Cage

Gordon Monahan – Speaker Swinging

Trimpin – Ratatatatatt

Janet Cardiff & George Bures – Lost in the Memory Palace

This week’s reading has been my favorite due to the sound installations. I chose a brief timeline (based on some examples in the reading) to show both a history of sound art as well as the importance of installation/sculpture art. A major part of what I find interesting is the experimentation and invention which is why Thomas Edison is in this list. Artists play a major role in development and design in addition to conceptual or political thinking.
