"SoundCulture is the only festival of its kind to be held in the United States; no other art or music festival in this country has focused on the sonic arts with this kind of scope and format. Due to its ephemeral nature, sonic art work does not fit well into the structures that support the presentation and discussion of either visual art or music. While the influence of sound work can be found in everything from film to installation to the media arts, the form itself has not been accorded the kind of attention its influence warrants.
SoundCulture's unique focus on this kind of activity presents an opportunity to expose experimental sound work well beyond Eurocentric cultural boundaries, and to demonstrate links, crosscurrents, and diversity in the sonic arts of the Pacific Region."
