To inaugurate the Sonos Studio with our first cycle of programming we went to the core of what the space is all about: listening. The events and installation “Center of Attention” by multimedia artist Luke Fischbeck were about sharing the experience of listening out loud. “Center of Attention” is an interactive, touch-activated installation: a giant musical instrument,
playable by any number of participants at once.
To celebrate the launch of the Studio we hosted
a DJ set by Questlove and a live performance by Bleached. The cycle also included an evening of music and conversation with reggae legend Jimmy Cliff, and a screening of the experimental surf film series Frequencies, starring Kassia Meador,
with live musical accompaniment by psych-pop
