Sound Matters

Exploring the connections between craft practice and sound art

Seven contemporary works have been selected to illustrate ways in which these two distinct practices collide. Exploring the physicality of sound, the works are characterised by both their sonic properties and materiality.

Drawn from across creative disciplines, each work is indicative of a different approach: looking to traditional craft heritage and processes such as weaving and woodturning to create new sound forms, playing with shared technologies and language and revealing the sounds of materials.

Sound Matters offers a new and multi-sensory engagement with craft, with each work demanding to be heard as well as seen.
