Thanks everyone for such stimulating posts.  I enjoyed an exhibition in
Taiwan this spring on the history of sound art in Taiwan from martial law
onward: "ALTERing NATIVism: Sound Cultures in Post-War Taiwan" at the Cube
Project Space.  This included footage of very loud rave events that bled
into other rooms and pieces.  I actually found the bleed to be fascinating
and energizing, as if to suggest that the energy and volume of these
radical performance events (just after the lifting of martial
law)connected with and resounded through the related sound art projects in

It's interesting that noone has yet to mention curating sound art online
where many of these bleed problems are naturally contained.  You might be
interested in an exhibition that I did with Arthur and Marilouise Kroker
for our collaborative project, CTHEORY Multimedia, called NetNoise:
http://ctheorymultimedia.cornell.edu/four.php  Although the pieces don't
bleed into each other, they will continue to resonate in the background if
users don't close their browser (a little trick we played on more naïve
users of a decade agoŠ).
