The world premiere of Frozen Music’s Early – Timely – Late will activate Vizcaya’s Forecourt with a multichannel soundscape that will arise from a confluence of sonic activation strategies where each member of FM engages with their own autonomous audio gestalt and unique instrumentation to simultaneously occupy and stimulate the same acoustic environment.

subtropics 25

keep your eyes on the radar about our next milestone, Subtropics 25 when you’ll be able to hear live people peopling with joy all of the repressed creativity our artists have reserved for this Miami celebration now slated for September 2021.

FM Soundpaintings

Subtropics 25 will showcase the world premiere of FM: Soundpaintings—a 120-channel orchestrational set of variations on a theme by our own beloved Frozen Music artist, David Dunn, specially composed and designed for the Constellation sound system at Soundscape Park by the members of Frozen Music

Amplifying the multichannel sound experience typical of Frozen Music will be an HDR, high resolution enhanced version of the film 60 Sound Paintings, a visual representation of Dunn’s theme. This performance will also commemorate the first decade of Frozen Music

This performances are possible with the support of the City of Miami Beach Department of Tourism and Culture, Cultural Arts Council, and the Miami Beach Mayor and City Commissioners; and Miami-Dade County Mayor, the Board of County Commissioners and the Cultural Affairs Department; The New World Symphony; and The Blank Family Foundation.
