Haroon Mirza has created a new eight speaker commission for the Pérez Art Museum Miami, opening 21 July. For this project, he has made a specialised technical system that transmits an electrical current through speakers and light-emitting diodes (LEDs) that act in coordination with one another so that different colours are activated by corresponding noise frequencies. This system produces a choreographed experience of sound and light based on compositions created by the artist in relation to individual artworks from the museum’s permanent collection, and will be the dynamic centerpiece of an installation that redefines the viewer's phenomenological experience of the space.

For the opening of the exhibition, Mirza will join PAMM Associate Curator Diana Nawi in conversation on 20 July at 7pm. The talk is open to the public. More information can be found here.
