Cathy Lane & Angus Carlyle – Sound arts now

Pre-order: Estimated arrival March 30, 2021

In Sound Arts Now, Cathy Lane and Angus Carlyle explore
contemporary artistic practices and theories, and what contributes to or hinders artistic and career develop-
ment. This is conducted through a series of interviews with artists and curators, putting the often-unheard
voice of the maker at the centre of the discourse.
There is a conscious shift of reference away from the “white men from the global north” who have domi-
nated the canon during the decades of the discipline’s emergence and establishment. The twenty interviews
focus on contemporary and future ideas and practices
with artists at early or mid-points in their working lives, whose backgrounds, geographical locations and experi-
ences are as wide-ranging as their approaches and ideas.

While not claiming to be a definitive survey, Sound Arts 
Now broadens and destabilises what we have come to
understand as sound arts, offering new and different
 pathways, frames of reference, and modes of thinking.
