Sound is a vibration that moves in waves through the air, solids, and liquids. We can perceive these vibrations by hearing, feeling, or even seeing the vibrations – like the way very loud bass sounds can cause a window pane to tremble. We might think of most of visual art as being audibly silent, but there are many visual artworks that evoke or employ sound in powerful ways. Here are artists who use sound as a primary medium, artists who evoke sound or music in their work, and musicians who respond to visual art through sound.
