The foundation for this text is my 10xCD opus The Sounds of Ideas Forming (2008–2012), an archive of 318 sound files featuring content from art students, children and practitioners such as Yoko Ono, David Bowie, Chris Watson, Douglas Gordon, Lydia Lunch, Brian Eno and George Brecht. The Sound of a Sound Art Archive considers this particular sound archive, examining formats, narrative and the relationship between recording sound and recorded sound. I draw upon first person experiences and examples from curating, pedagogy and sound art to arrive at a series of frameworks for a sound art archive, one that is finite, educational and able to interject into everyday contexts.
