about this bookdeutsch english In the 20th century, working with sound is not the exclusive domain of musicians and composers. Sound turns out to be a space-consuming and sculptural material of the fine arts. In contrast to traditional music, time is secondary to spacial aspects of the sound installations. In many cases the “atmospheric soundscapes” appear almost static – but the visitors are by no means passive consumers as in a classical concert hall. They move through the sonic environments at their pace and become protagonists of their very own aesthetic experience. In sound installation art, the sounding atmospheres create moods and emotions constituting feelings and subjective experience. In this study sound installations are viewed from different perspectives: Historic and technological aspects, multidimensional meanings of space and aesthetic considerations are discussed. By interviewing five sound artists, we look into individual artistic strategies, motivations and intentions. A field study is conducted to investigate how recipients perceive sound art. Is it possible to communicate emotional expression through the acoustic atmospheres of the sound installations? And is there statistical evidence of effects on the recipients emotional state?
