Soundings: A Contemporary Score features the work of 16 contemporary interdisciplinary artists who explore the relationships between sounds, objects, and environments—how we listen and how the spaces in which we listen impact our experiences. This discussion addresses the materiality of sound: the ways in which sound can shape our physical, collective, and social experiences; our framework for understanding our environments; and how the medium of sound is particularly positioned to challenge familiar ways of thinking. Participants include Philip Brophy, writer, composer, and film director; Christoph Cox, Professor of Philosophy, Hampshire College, and a faculty member at the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College; Branden Joseph, Frank Gallipoli Professor of Modern and Contemporary Art, Department of Art History and Archaeology, Columbia University; and Johanna Fateman, musician, writer, record producer, and member of the band Le Tigre. Moderated by Barbara London, Associate Curator, Department of Media and Performance Art, and organizer of the exhibition.

In conjunction with the exhibitions MoMA Studio: Sound in Space and Soundings: A Contemporary Score
