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
