Welcome to the CEC
Canadian Electroacoustic Community (CEC)
Guest editor: Nicolas Bernier
Sound artists have always maintained a strong relation with the visual. This issue of eContact! is more specifically interested in the creative use of sound and light. Historical and analytical reflections are complemented by contributions that bring “to light” different artistic perspectives and practices. (October 2017)
