In the age of new technologies, evolving new media and tactics in contemporary 
art, so called sound art or practice of introducing aural dimensions into 
visual arts has confronted a revival of its characteristics. We can trace its 
roots back to early 20th century into the Futurist and Dada movement and find 
its most important realisations in the 60ies with the breakthrough of the 
neo-avantgarde in the form of John Cage, Nam June Paik and Laurie Anderson, and 
continue to find its connectedness with contemporary experimental and 
electronica music from 80ies until now. 

In exhibited projects the participating artists are developing subjective 
relationships with sound. I was interested to display as broad and various 
spectrum of sound art works as possible. These include 'silent' pieces 
(Monogramista T.D., Susan Philipsz), web-based art works (Marjetica Potrè, 
Scanner+Tonne), sound sculpture (Marc Behrens), music video (Egill Saebjörnsson 
) and installation and video ambience that include sound as its most 
constitutive element (Marko Peljhan, Carina Randlov).
