Sound Pointage is type of artwork that demonstrates a new method of creating digital sound. It compiles minimal elements of digital information to build sound. In this approach, artists can control all aspects of sound rather than simply allocating abstract musical concepts such as notes. Sound Pointage was implemented with a high-performance computer mouse and was open to the public for two weeks. Visitors freely interacted with the work, and their actions were accumulated as a seamless waveform, eventually being converted into a hi-fi sound.
