Over the past century, an art form has emerged that draws from the worlds of visual art and music. While sound’s increasing importance in the art world is evidenced by recent exhibitions and books devoted to the subject, sound art has yet to be accurately defined. In this authoritative volume, author Alan Licht lays bear the origins of sound art, offering the reader the most thorough understanding of the field to date, and explores the genre’s most important practitioners. A CD is included with six extraordinary sound works by a range of artists, including Jean Dubuffet and more recent pieces by Steve Roden and Mike Kelley’s band Destroy All Monsters.
