Sound Art

Genres and Categories [G&C]  ]

This term has been used inconsistently throughout the years. Currently it is generally used to designate sound installations (associated with art galleries and museums), public sonic art and site-specific sonic art events. Its German equivalent, Klangkunst, is in greater usage than this English language term.
