An anechoic chamber (“an-echoic” meaning non-reflective, non-echoing or echo-free) is a room designed to completely absorb reflections of either sound or electromagnetic waves. They are also insulated from exterior sources of noise.

Sound art is usually set as an installation, because they’re not really a better way to appreciate this type of artistic discipline by discipline ourselves before the medium. Just like any other art, sound art does not required to be publicly-accepted-melodious conventionally, we can find its inspiration from daily routines, places we can’t experience as we like, or places we Read more →
This is my video for the Singapore Diary project. I wanted to show the culture of Dragon boat as not many people are familiar with the sport.

I have Googled for sound installations and was drawn and attracted to particularly one of them. The artwork is titled Intersection and it is a sound installation by Don Ritter.
So what happens in this installation is Read more →
