Bilingual (English/French) and biannual, Volume
– What You See Is What You Hear
is the first magazine devoted to sound issues in art
, and to the complex relationships between visual and sound forms, both in contemporary art and history. Volume
is neither a musical magazine, nor a magazine about sound art; rather, it sees sound from the angle of the visual arts. The history of relations between sound and art is not recent, but the past few years have seen many more works, exhibitions, publications and other events whose aesthetic and theoretical content attests to a growing interest in this medium, and the various ways it is used. Through a broad range of critical and artistic contributions, it is Volume
's intent to represent a platform observing and analyzing this dynamic, while at the same time being sure to re-position it within a historical perspective.
The curatorial and editorial platform What You See Is What You Hear also publishes various projects in the form of books, exhibitions and events.
