Sonic Innovations, conceived and curated by sound artist Stephan Moore, continues to expand Caramoor’s programming with an annual exhibition of sound art, commissioned from artists working with sonic materials but outside the traditional modes of concert music.
Since the groundbreaking exhibition In the Garden of Sonic Delights in 2014 (winner of ArtsWestchester’s Innovation Award), Caramoor has included sound art as part of its world-class programming, taking advantage of the historic grounds as a site for multiple works. Each artist has drawn inspiration from their chosen location, creating work that is mindful of the natural and human-made sounds and systems already present in the environment, while engaging each site’s unique characteristics, be they acoustic, historic, architectural, or natural.
