Soundings: A Contemporary Score

Text by Barbara London, Anne Hilde Neset.

Featured image, Richard Garet's sound installation, "Before Me" (2012), is reproduced from <I>Soundings: A Contemporary Score</I>.Soundings: A Contemporary Score investigates the ways in which some of the most innovative contemporary artists are working with sound today. These artists approach sound from a variety of disciplines--visual arts, architecture, performance, computer programming and music--yet they share an interest in working with, rather than against or independent of, a given situation or environment. Their responses include architectural interventions, visualizations of inaudible sound, explorations of sound ricocheting within a gallery, and a range of field recordings--of bats, abandoned buildings in Chernobyl, bells in New York City and a factory in Taiwan. Published in conjunction with MoMA’s first major exhibition of sound art, Soundings presents an overview essay by Barbara London, Associate Curator in MoMA’s Department of Media and Performance Art; a recent history of sonic art by writer Anne Hilde Neset; and a section on each of the featured artists, featuring a brief interview and illustrated with installation shots, field photographs and documentation of performances. The diversity of these works echoes the complexities of the contested field of sound art, but together they posit something specific: that sound can elicit--from both the maker and the audience--modes of active, focused listening and a heightened relationship between interior and exterior space. The artists included here are Tristan Perich, Carsten Nicolai, Richard Garet, Haroon Mirza, Sergei Tcherepnin, Camille Normet, Jana Winderen, Hong-Kai Wang, Susan Philipsz, Toshiya Tsunoda, Luke Fowler, Jacob Kirkegaard, Christine Sun Kim, Florian Hecker, Marco Fusinato and Stephen Vitiello.

Soundings: A Contemporary Score

Soundings: A Contemporary Score

This weekend, The Museum of Modern Art opens Soundings: A Contemporary Score, MoMA first major exhibition of sound art. Featuring work by 16 artists, the show is accompanied by a film series and an ongoing program of performances and lectures. Featured image, a still from Hong-Kai Wang's multi-channel sound and two-channel video installation, "Music While We Work" (2011), is reproduced from the exhibition catalog. She writes, "My interest in sound stemmed from my experience as a foreigner in New York City, constantly confronting the inadequacy and inaccessibility of language. My inability to properly express myself in English frustrated my desire to communicate. This prompted me to be very conscious of any sonic information I could glean. Listening became my primary form of agency vis-à-vis my daily experience. I was able to speculate freely about the chaos and confusion around me. Since then, listening—as an organizing principle—has been a focal point in my research." continue to blog
