Meet-the-Artists: Soundpocket [Full]



Meet-the-Artists


“Meet-the-Artists” allows arts ambassadors to talk to different local artists face to face to appreciate their artwork and learn their interesting stories behind
 


Sound is ubiquitous
Art is everywhere

Vibration of an object creates sound, it is transmitted through air. Lifespan of sound is always very short, it may only last for a moment. How can we appreciate and record the sound? How can we make it as an art? Soundpocket is actively promoting and organizing various events about sound art, recently they have built The Library by Soundpocket, regard and articulate sound collecting as an artistic practice. Let’s visit their studio, understand more about their work and investigate the Library.

Soundpocket
 
Soundpocket is a promoter, educator, facilitator, and gatherer. They work in the fields of sound, art and culture. They find sound in diverse and dynamic relations with many different art forms (visual art, installation art, music, theatre, dance etc.), and with a variety of cultural contexts that give meanings to our lives. They would like to work with all those who share this active interest in sound.
 
Soundpocket supports not just an art form, but ideas and possibilities that engage with aesthetically meaningful, culturally-grounded and publicly relevant sonic practices, which have a lot to teach about how we understand the world and the experiences yet to be valued.
