The Art of Sound is a new collaborative project between the National Film and Sound Archive and selected regional art galleries, which examines the intersections between sound and the visual arts. NFSA curators compiled a ‘sound palette’ for the project – a package of 50 Australian recordings that represent the breadth and diversity of the NFSA sound collection. The palette includes songs, speeches, experimental works, spoken word, orchestral compositions and environmental recordings. The palette is then shared with the partner galleries, whose curators explore both the sounds of the palette and the galleries’ own collections to create unique exhibitions, linking sound recordings to selected artworks that they feel complement each other.

Artists: Hans Arkeveld, Nyukuna Baker, Ray Beattie, Brian Blanchflower, Joanna Capelle, Rachel Coad, Kevin Draper, Russell Drysdale, Mandy Francis, Stuart Green, Guy Grey-Smith, Giles Hohnen, Tim Johnson, Emily Kngwarreye, Yipati Kuyata, Michael Le Grand, Jon Molvig, Robert Moore, Sidney Nolan, Rosslynd Piggott, Trevor Richards, Nura Rupert, Tjariya (Nungalka) Stanley, Mitsuo Takeuchi, Rover Thomas, Sarah Toohey, Keizo Ushi, Ken Wadrop.
