Studio Sound: From Analog to Digital and Back Again

The Museum of Modern Art

The Museum of Modern Art, MoMA PS1, and the MoMA Stores in New York City have closed temporarily. Updates to be announced.

The inaugural Studio Sound program, From Analog to Digital and Back Again (June 18–July 12, 2020), brings together musicians of different generations working with innovative music technologies. Organized around themes including analog synthesis, computer music, and the digital voice, these performances will present both new and existing works that rethink the relationship between humans and technology in the context of live musical performance. Artists in the series include Suzanne Ciani (American, born 1946), Pamela Z (American, born 1956), and Sarah Davachi (Canadian, born 1987), among others. Performances will occur on select evenings throughout the exhibition.

A detailed performance schedule is forthcoming.


Studio Sound is organized by Martha Joseph, Assistant Curator, Department of Media and Performance, and produced by Kate Scherer, Manager, with Ginny Benson, Assistant Performance Coordinator, Performance and Live Programs.


Media and Performance at MoMA is made possible by Hyundai Card.
