Acoustic Meanings in Media Arts 2014-36-0762

When a stimulus is perceived through the senses, a reconstruction takes place in the consciousness that allows its perception as a coherent wholeness; an acoustic stimulation generates a sensation that reveals the aesthetic sense and sets aside objective registers to give way to the symbolism of sound. The reasoning and logical rigor of acoustics as an exact science finds a connection point with pure expression that includes technology as a fruitful field of art.
