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.

The Lower East Side’s own Avenida B presides over the dance floor for a night of classic salsa dura. It may be a new group but it has an old soul, committed to unearthing and reviving the old-school sound and timeless swing of the kind of salsa that truly makes you want to get up and dance. DJ Antonio (a.k.a. La Conga NYC) gets the floor warmed up with a salsa set that stretches from the ’60s to today.

It will be presented in collaboration with the NYU Music and Social Change Lab. You can connect to the Facebook event page for extra insights on this program. Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
