I used to wonder what that sound sculpture meant.
Subscribe to the Youtube channel press that says Sculpture and I am.
I really like the Youtube channel but I'm curious and not confident in
The sculpture style, sometimes when we listen to it
Let us feel really good and feel at times unbelievably relaxing.
And astounding because I myself started to listen from it comfortably and met
By accident, but instead made me like this incredible sound wave

 
The Future of Music ??


This article aims to sketch a theory of sound sculpture, one that would explain the variety of forms this artistic practice might take on and define it in relation to other art forms. My hypothesis is that in order to do this we must focus on the traits of sound sculpture connecting it to music rather than on those separating the two. A useful instrument to analyse this connection is Harry Partch’s concept of corporeal music. In contrast to Western classical music, which he viewed as abstract and devoid of life, Partch envisioned a music that would emphasise the physicality of sound-making and engage the listener on a more visceral level. Investigating a number of works from all parts of the sound sculpture spectrum, I argue that all the various practices that comprise the art form present the core traits of Partch’s musical ideal (physicality of music, audience engagement, and unity of the sonic and the visual) to a substantial extent. Analysing sound sculpture in light of its connection to music brings to the fore a number of musical issues for which this new art form provides a new perspective. Among these are the agency of the composer and the listener, the function and nature of a score, as well as the role of technology in music-making. These issues, along with the general idea of corporeality of music, compose a discourse that transcends the boundaries of different subgenres of sound sculpture, allowing for theorisation of the art form as a whole. in Expanding the Horizon of Electroacoustic Music Analysis
