We are a few days from opening the doors to Sonos Studio NYC at NeueHouse.* Six days, 30+ events, a fresh exploration of the intersection of music, art and technology.
One of the installations at Sonos Studio NYC is “Sounds of NYC,” an interactive conceptual map of New York made from more than 300 Sonos PLAY:1 speakers and subs. We collaborated with interactive tech collective Perfect Fools to craft this ‘living’ piece of art that will automatically react to people moving in front of it. We are working with duo Big Noble (Daniel Kessler of Interpol and sound designer & artist Joseph Fraioli) to create an original soundscape for the installation and reimagine their upcoming NYC-inspired soundscape ‘First Light’ with motion, depth and field recordings from New York.
Google Play is helping us power the installation’s music experience, and renowned New York DJs and music producers Wolf+Lamb have curated the playlists incorporated into the installation to celebrate the long and rich history of music in the city. Get a peek at “Sounds of NYC” now before we get it installed at NeueHouse.
If you are in New York, be sure to RSVP for our Open House hours so you can see all the installations and hang out with us.
And one more thing…a new performance has been added to our stellar lineup. We’ve invited Band of Skulls and ASTR to come and rock the Studio on Saturday, October 4th at 9:00 pm. You can RSVP for that performance here.
*NeueHouse is a private workspace collective in Manhattan, located at 110 E. 25th Street. RSVP is required and nontransferable.
