Environmental Sound Artists: In Their Own Words, edited by Frederick

Bianchi and V. J. Manzo.

Environmental Sound Artists: In Their Own Words is an incisive and

imaginative look at the international environmental sound art movement,

which emerged in the late 1960s. The term environmental sound art is

generally applied to the work of sound artists who incorporate processes

in which the artist actively engages with the environment. While the

field of environmental sound art is diverse and includes a variety of

approaches, the art form diverges from traditional contemporary music by

the conscious and strategic integration of environmental impulses and

natural processes.

This book presents a current perspective on the environmental sound art

movement through a collection of personal writings by important

environmental sound artists. Dismayed by the limitations and gradual

breakdown of contemporary compositional strategies, environmental sound

artists have sought alternate venues, genres, technologies, and delivery

methods for their creative expression.

Environmental sound art is especially relevant because it addresses

political, social, economic, scientific, and aesthetic issues. As a

result, it has attracted the participation of artists internationally.

Awareness and concern for the environment has connected and unified

artists across the globe and has achieved a solidarity and clarity of

purpose that is singularly unique and optimistic. The environmental

sound art movement is borderless and thriving.
