On Wednesday, February 29 MSAE member Eric Leonardson moderated a panel discussion at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) on the development of sound recording as an art form in its own right.
Hosted by the Departments of Sculpture and Sound, the discussion examined the development of the art via the historical development of photography. Discussed was the development of non-music sound recording as art in relationship to photography.
