Soundwave creates a modernist event with works that explore water, our most important natural resource, in conjunction with special exhibition Modernism from the National Gallery of Art: The Robert and Jane Meyerhoff Collection.

Inspired by the modernist-era sonic artists such as John Cage, Elliot Carter, and Igor Stravinsky, who reinterpreted music and created innovations that led to new ways of organizing and approaching harmonic, melodic, sonic, and rhythmic aspects of music, this evening's program will present artists and musicians who explore these notions and pay homage to modernism throughout the museum’s indoor and outdoor spaces.

MEDIATE presents San Francisco’s acclaimed biennial festival of innovative sound, art, and music. Each two-year season brings together multidisciplinary artists to investigate a new idea through sound that challenges the way you see, hear, and experience art and music.
