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
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.
