Since its inception, by British artist William Furlong in 1972, the seminal sound art magazine, Audio Arts has become one of the most comprehensive aural archive of artists’ voices and sound art in the world.

Audio Arts arguably represents the most comprehensive and coherently-focused sound archive devoted to art and artists in the world, featuring exclusive contributions from more than 900 individual artists including Joseph Beuys, Ian Breakwell, Tracey Emin and Andy Warhol.

The Tate has digitised every published version of Audio Arts, alongside selected archive images for each audio-cassette, to create this online resource.
