VOLUMES is an immersive audio-visual installation by interdisciplinary artist/musician Ezra Masch. The exhibition will be open Tuesday through Sunday, 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.In VOLUMES, live drumming activates a matrix of vertical lights installed in a three-dimensional grid. Velocity and pitch determine the quantity of light that floods the gallery, creating a dynamic sensory experience for viewers. 

Over 60 drummers from across the country responded to the museum’s open call to perform in the month-long installation, which will activate the space during the run of the show. Each week, a special guest will play in a performance series curated by Masch, including renowned drummers Brian Blade, Antonio Sánchez, Greg Fox, and Taylor “Pocket Queen” Gordon.  

VOLUMES is an ongoing project that becomes new with every iteration,” says Masch on his third museum show to date. “One of my favorite things about the project is the reciprocal relationship between sound and vision. Each musician has their own style, which translates to a different visual experience every time. Simultaneously, the light itself influences the drummers’ creative direction as they play.” 

The curated event series will kick off on August 16th with Taylor Gordon. Learn more about the curated events
