The Studio of Acoustic Art

September 11-September 24, 2000

As part of a two-week international sound festival, SFMOMA has commissioned guest curator Klaus Schöning to present Jukebox, a mix of recorded acoustic art and experimental music by John Cage, Alvin Curran, Bill Fontana, Nicola Sani and other composers and acoustic artists drawn from the archives of Studio Acoustic Art in Cologne, Germany.

Acoustic art is a melting pot of heterogeneous elements: noise, language and music organized by means of electronic techniques into a new, unique genre. Jukebox will run daily in four rotating programs in the Museum's Phyllis Wattis Theater.
