Learn more about Sound Art

One of the fascinating parts of Electronic Music is Sound Art - and here are some excellent sites to see and hear Sound Art. You gotta hear this! And see the photos too!
Sonic Postcards is a unique and innovative national education programme in the UK. The project enables young people to explore and compare their local sound environments through the composition and exchange of sound postcards with other schools, via the Internet.

The Sonic Postcards project was started by Sonic Arts Network which is a UK national organisation that enables both audiences and practitioners to engage with the art of sound in diverse, accessible and innovative ways. Sonic Arts Network fosters a culture of creative risk taking and experimental approaches to sound through a cutting edge programme of festivals, events, commissions and education projects. The organisation believes in the unique capacity of listening to enrich people’s lives by unlocking creativity, promoting social and environmental awareness and engaging a diverse range of communities.

One of their most interesting annual events is Cut and Splice which is a festival of experimental electronic music that brings together the most exciting international artists to premiere new and cutting edge work or recreate seminal historical pieces.
