SOUNDARTMUSEUM DIGITAL ARCHIVE

SoundArtMuseum, Via Conte Verde, 15 00185 Rome (Italy)
SAM archive on the Internet - Since three years from its start, SoundArtMuseum goes on the Internet.
More than one thousand artworks collected through an open call starting from 2004, will be accessible along with all the information within the database.
Hosted on the new Zerynthia and RAM radioartemobile portal, the special section for SoundArtMuseum lists all information and multimedia on artists and artworks in the archive-- in alphabetical order and with a search module.
Beyond specific information on the artworks and (when necessary) on the compilation where they are included, the website also displays technical information, consistent biographical information and links to other resources and external websites.
The digital platform to access the SoundArtMuseum material allows a direct approach to an important resource which will be a tool for researchers interested in contemporary arts and multimedia. The consistent body of artworks in the archive comprise more than two hundred artists and one thousand artworks, ranging from the Eighties to the early 2000s, and includes artists from different generations and various approaches to sound and its possible uses within artistic practices.[CONTINUED]
