Open Sound

Open Sound is an exhibition program developed in 2008 by Surrey Art Gallery to support the production and presentation of audio art forms as part of contemporary art practice. Open Sound seeks to feature the leading edge of audio art, and has included site specific installation, radio experiments, ecological practices, and other investigations into the limits of sound today.

Sound Thinking

Founded in 2008, Surrey Art Gallery's Sound Thinking symposium is an annual event that brings together practitioners and professionals in sound art. The symposium features leading sound artists, scholars, and researchers in the field of sound studies, along with visual artists who use sound as key components of their practice and musicians who experiment with the limits of music and sound.

Sound Thinking is part of Surrey Art Gallery's Open Sound program and relates to the sound artworks on display during the year.
