Course Description

The Graduate Seminar in Sound Art and Related Media is designed to create a space that is inclusive yet focused on sound as an art form and a medium. Class time is structured to support, reflect, and challenge students as individual artists and as a community. The course examines the medium and subject of sound in an expanded field, investigating its constitutive materials, exhibition and installation practices, and its ethics in the 21st century. The seminar will focus on the specific relations between tools, ideas, and meanings and the specific histories and theories that have arisen when artists engage with sound as a medium and subject in art. The seminar combines discussions of readings and artworks with presentations of students' work and research, as well as site visits and guest lectures.


While the Columbia Visual Arts Program is dedicated to maintaining an interdisciplinary learning environment where students are free to use and explore different mediums while also learning to look at, and critically discuss, artwork in any medium, we are equally committed to providing in-depth knowledge concerning the theories, histories, practices, tools and materials underlying these different disciplines. We offer Graduate Seminars in different disciplines, or combinations of disciplines, including moving image, new genres, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, as well as in Sound Art in collaboration with the Columbia Music Department through their Computer Music Center. These Discipline Seminars are taught by full-time and adjunct faculty, eminent critics, historians, curators, theorists, writers, and artists.
