The term “sound art” was first used in 1983 by William Hellerman for an exhibition at The Sculpture Center in New York by the Sound Art Foundation, but the argument of what constitutes music, sound, art and noise has been continuing for centuries.

GV Art continues this discussion in its forthcoming exhibition NOISE and whispers, which uniquely considers the fusion of sound, art and science by bringing together the work of over 30 international contemporary artists.

From the earliest revelation that objects make noise, through to the complex digital sound manipulations of today, artists have embraced new discoveries to create works impossible in previous generations.

The pieces in NOISE and whispers explore the diversity of sound in our environment, from field recordings of the natural world (including the sound of the sun) to the sound generated by technology…from the sounds of being human to the noise that humans create.

Exhibited works range from Bill Nelson’s visceral “Lacuna” to the academic explorations of Josh Horsley’s “Day born”, a notated score that discusses the multiplicity of sound plus music as we experience it through time and space.
Disinformation’s “National Grid”, a sub-bass installation sourced from the ambient VLF field radiated by electricity pylons and mains circuits, highlights sounds that surrounds us. Meanwhile, Janek Schaefer’s “That was the year that was…” overlays number 1’s from a single year played all at the same time, forcing us to listen in a new way.

Exhibition related events: There will be a series of events and live performances programmed during the exhibition that further explore the nature of sound, more details: www.gvart.co.uk/category/events
