Sound Art Text
All about sound art. And art with sound. And sound in art. And sometimes music, installation and film. And often Fluxus.
Read articles, find out about events, discover artists, watch clips, listen to works, ask questions.

Serbian composer, visual artist and theoretician Vladan Radovanović (b. Belgrade, 1932), is a Yugoslavian electronic music pioneer who established former Yugoslavia’s first electroacoustic music studio, the Radio Belgrade Electronic Studio in 1972 – see English bio here. During the 1970s, Radovanović turned to sound poetry and readings of conceptual texts a la Lawrence Weiner. He appeared on various sound poetry compilations listed in the discography below. Developed in a book of the same name in 1987, Radovanović’s Vokovizuel concept encompasses his activities as a sound and visual poet – of which some examples are included in this essay in Serb. In 2010, he published a study on electronic music titled Muzika i Elektroakustička Muzika, published by Izdavačka knjižarnica Zorana Stojanovića, Novi Sad, Serbia.
The Center for Advances in Digital Entertainment Technologies (CADET) is a joint venture of the Ars Electronica Futurelab and the Multimedia Technology and Multimedia Art program at the University of Salzburg’s Department of Applied Sciences. CADET is doing R&D on new possibilities for full-body interaction with computer systems, avatars and the like. The corresponding Github repository is at https://github.com/cadet
Open source is not only essential to technological innovation; it also has the potential to influence many aspects of social life. The Futurelab will continue to support this development in the future.

This was my favourite work shown at this year’s 55th Venice Biennale, in the Irish Pavilion. In this video, the artist and photographer Richard Mosse reveals the stories behind the making of ‘The Enclave’ (2013), in the Democratic Republic of Congo, with reference to the sound track - entirely composed of field recordings .
