“Bilinguage (english-french). First issue of the contemporary art journal about sound, devoted to the complex relationships between visual and sound forms, both in contemporary art and history.
Featuring: analysis (“A Brief History of Sound Art” by Rahma Khazam; “Sound Art, a Fortified Art” by Bastien Gallet; “Notes on Steve Reich's Pendulum Music” by Christophe Gallois; “A Formless Form” by Mathieu Copeland; “Sound in Artist's Films” by Alexandre Castant, etc.) / “focus” on Philippe Decrauzat's Leslie, by Matthieu Poirier, monographs (Laurent Montaron, Su-Mei Tse, Georgina Starr, Joachim Schmid) / interviews (Sébastien Faucon, Kerwin Rolland) / artist's interventions (Nicolas Fenouillat, Dominique Petitgand, Jérôme Poret, Samon Takahashi)...
This first issue questions and challenges the often blurred boundaries between sound art and contemporary art presenting sound as a medium or simple referent. It also broaches the figurative dimension of sound through its pictorial, photographic and sculptural representations, as distinct – by way of their silence – from strictly acoustic and sonic considerations. Some articles explore its time-related dimension, especially through the recording factor and the exhibition format. All areas of interest which give a glimpse of the scope of the intermingled territories of sound and the visual arts.
Bilingual (English/French) and biannual, Volume is the first magazine devoted to sound issues in art, and to the complex relationships between visual and sound forms, both in contemporary art and history.
Volume is neither a musical magazine, nor a magazine about sound art; rather, it sees sound from the angle of the visual arts. The history of relations between sound and art is not recent, but the past few years have seen many more works, exhibitions, publications and other events whose aesthetic and theoretical content attests to a growing interest in this medium, and the various ways it is used. Through a broad range of critical and artistic contributions, it is Volume's intent to represent a platform observing and analyzing this dynamic, while at the same time being sure to re-position it within a historical perspective.” label info
