Sounds Codes Images
The collective monograph 'Sounds Codes Images' explores the transitional zone between image and sound, particularly in the fields where visual arts and music meet and interconnect. The first section introduces approaches to sound and experimentation in the field of fine arts from the perspective of so-called sound studies and maps the overlaps of image of sound in Czech visual art and synaesthesia from the position of contemporary music theory. It also addresses the contemporary topic of acoustic ecology. The second section of the book comprises an introduction to the works of several dozen Czech, Slovak, and foreign artists who, in their local contexts, experimented with sound, the sonification of images, or the visualization of sound: authors of graphic scores, abstract images, sounding or resonating objects, and instalations or works utilizing digital media.
