The essay locates Peter Vogel's pioneering sound art work in his biography. Vogel, born to artist parents, decided early to become a painter himself. The constraints of post-war Germany lead him to study physics, neurophysiology and cybernics, which he applied in medical research. Vogel continued painting and in the 1970s tried to introduce the element of time in his art, which in his view can best be expressed through sound. This lead him to the creation of interactive sound objects which react to the viewer through sound and movement. Two of Vogel's major works – Shadow Orchestra and Sound Wall – are described and contextualised in the essay.
