Presented with Art Alliance for Contemporary Glass "Sound and Vision" explores the influence of music on contemporary glass art and the inextricable connection between music and visual expression. It showcases figurative representations of instruments and sound, experimental glass instruments, and multimedia and sculptural works inspired by both musical experiences and legends like David Bowie, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain, Michael Jackson and many others.

In addition to its use as a medium for musically thematic and illustrative visual work, glass has been used to physically create music for hundreds of years. Whether by friction, as with the glass harmonica and the crystallophone, or by percussion, as with glass marimbas and instruments like the Thai ranat kaeo, the aural potential of glassmaking has been a fruitful subject of exploration. A renewed artistic interest in the acoustic properties of glass has led to exciting experimentation with form, structure, and performance.
