Sound is invisible, but omnipresent. It has profoundly impacted life on earth and human existence since its beginnings. In the human imagination - and in part due to the fact that it is invisible - sound has always had magical connotations. It is an unreal, mysterious and otherworldly material that is difficult to capture and archive anywhere else than in humankind’s ephemeral memory.

Since the end of the 20th and the beginning of the 21st century, technological developments (notably the arrival of digital devices) have increased our capacity not only to conserve and reproduce sound (recording), but also to visualise it (oscilloscope, spectrogram). The numerous tools we have created to observe and record this phenomenon have allowed us to understand the capacities of sound and analyse its component parts. However, above and beyond observation, these tools have let us express and enhance the already strong connections between sound and image.
