Inner Ear Vision: Sound as Medium is an exhibition opening at The Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts July 11th. The show seeks to challenge people in their perception of what sound and art are, or what music and experimentation tend to mean, as well as their intersection.

The show is curated by Raven Chacon, Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe and Maria Elena Buzek and is part of the inaugural events surrounding the Sound Art+Experimental Music Program. The exhibition offers a rift on traditional musical instruments by a number of artists.
