Auditions: Sound Residency at Khoj

Sonic Art has moved into an audio culture where musicians, composers, sound artists, scholars and listeners are attentive to sonic material; the act of listening and the creative possibilities open through sound recording, dissemination, transmission and playback is transforming art production and the endless scope of sound and noise. This ‘culture of the ear’ has recently come to prominence as social scientists, anthropologists and culture studies academics started to notice and study sound a marker of cultural difference and temporality.

Sound Art in India is a nascent, but emerging field. With more and more artists and musicians exploring the meaning of sound, a new language is being understood and redefined. The understanding of sound beyond music is leading to new experiments embodying new auditory sensibilities and awareness.
