Audio and Sound
The medium of sound is found in many contexts in the Canadian Art Database. It can be an artistic medium in and of itself, as is the case with sound art and music, and is often a vital component of physical installation art. It is also often an integral component of media art, such as film and video, as evidenced in many of the artist videos in the Database.
This section is intended to be a portal to the sound files and audio media found in the Canadian Art Database, providing a sense of the wide variety of artistic practices that involve the creation, manipulation and presentation of sonic material.
