Sound sculpture

Sound sculpture

Sound sculpture (related to sound art and sound installation) is an intermedia and time based artform in which sculpture or any kind of art object produces sound, or the reverse (in the sense that sound is manipulated in such a way as to create a sculptural as opposed to temporal form or mass). Most often sound sculpture artists were primarily either visual artists or composers, not having started out directly making sound sculpture.

Cymatics and kinetic art has influenced sound sculpture. Sound sculpture is sometimes site-specific.
