Sonic Arcade: Shaping Space with Sound is a multi-component exhibition featuring interactive installations, immersive environments, and performing objects that explore how the ephemeral and abstract nature of sound is made material. At a time when so much visual information is being dispatched, consumed, and digested, the auditory provides a compelling sensory experience that is capable of reorienting the body to consider spatial and interpersonal relationships anew. Comprised of linked solo and curated projects, Sonic Arcade explores sound as substance, framing it as interdependent material that is physically crafted and transmitted through electronic circuits and signals, radio waves, and resonant bodies that create encounters that are not only heard, but felt. The exhibition features contemporary artists, designers, and performers who respond to sound’s potential as a material that influences how people experience space, their environment, and time, drawing out the ability of the auditory to provide a fresh perspective on how surroundings, and the body, are perceived and engaged. Sonic Arcade features Audiowear, a collaborative solo project by Arjen Noordeman and Christie Wright.

Hailing from the Azawagh desert of Niger, guitarist and songwriter Mdou Moctar is pushing the boundaries of traditional Tuareg music. His first album, Anar, released in 2008, blended guitar with psychedelic electronics. Mp3s of the album turned him into an overnight sensation in West Africa and he continues to incorporate all different styles of music into his songs. He was also the star of the first ever Tuareg language film, where he portrayed a struggling guitarist. It is presented in collaboration with the World Music Institute. Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
