Human beings have a long history of using and studying sound. In ancient times, people used sound for religious ceremonies to achieve the purpose of fascination and awe; they used sound for cultural, entertainment and political acts. In the Book of Rites - The Record of Music, it is written, "The music of the man is also music, and human feelings cannot be avoided." It can be seen that as early as the pre-Qin Dynasty, our wise ancestors have discovered the inseparable relationship between sound and politics and society. In today's networked economy, new media public art is booming, and people are paying more attention to the sense of experience, interactive experience, shopping experience, and art experience. This makes our connection with sound become closer. This paper focuses on the experience and presentation of sound in new media public art. Sound design is also a product of the information age. In today's visual explosion, people who seem to be close to each other are actually more detached, and we need sound to create more trust and connection with each other.
