Electro-acoustic space-sound phenomena, plastic sound objects, appear increasingly in certain sound production processes in computer music of the past 60 years and can be classified as "classical" sculptural body-space relationships, independent of their technical descriptions and metaphorical attributions.

In his paper "Aural Sculpturality" the composer and sound artist Gerriet K. Sharma deals with sculptural aspects in loudspeaker music and questions the concept of sculpture in acousmatic music. His publication strives for a radically different definition of media-specific space-sound phenomena as "sculptural" and aims at the development of an aesthetic space-composing practice that presupposes space for the development of sound-plastic material.

This publication was published on the occasion of the exhibition Negative Space – Trajectories of Sculpture of the ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe (Apr. 6 – Aug. 11, 2019) and is supported by the project Interfaces as part of the Creative Europe program of the European Union.
