B-AIR – Art Infinity_Radio eBook (PDF, 440 pages, 161 Mb)

The purpose of the book is to convey the learning from the project, relevant for researchers, artists and practitioners wishing to explore and apply sound art in its many intersections with life and society.

Striving to meet many readers, the contributions in the book follow two main lines – ‘Research-to-Create’ and ‘Create-to-Research’ – which were the guiding principles in our project work. The content of the book is hence also twofold, comprising the theoretical and artistic reflections and creations.
