Audiosphere in the Contemporary Culture. Attempt of bringing closer NotionThe vast array of modern recording and processing equipment available nowadays allows us to obtain and employ most subtle sounds. In musical composition it is now possible to use anything which emits sound, thus making us more sensitive to the diversity of audio phenomena never recognized before. Many modern artists exploit this opportunity by creating constructions of sounds made by organism, tools and machines. Being sensitive to the pulse and vibrations of the world, armed with a microphone, contemporary artists travel the world looking for the material suitable for their projects.The examples of the implementation of the sonic practices presented above draw our attention to a number of new tendencies within contemporary audio art and the criticism thereof. The novel, experimental works of the avant-garde have already questioned the traditional notion of music with is defined form, specified notation, clear-cut authorship and explicit identity. The traditional paradigm of composition – work – interpretation has also been shifted and revalued. Without a doubt, new technologies play a vital role in the shift in the attitude to the problems connected with the art of sound. The incorporation of electronics has resulted in remarkably greater potential for organizing sonic material. The development in the technique of recording and modifying sound allows a composer to design the sounds itself, and not, as it was in the past, only multisonic structures. It also makes the sonic material practically unlimited, since it no longer belongs to a specific system, and is thus exceedingly varied. These changes are also affecting our everyday world of sound. Attempt was taken in this text to bring closer and name these changes.
