Frozen Music creates and performs artificial sound environments from field recordings and electronic signals that feature bird calls, insects and amphibian noises found in South Florida yards and gardens as well as in remote areas of the Everglades. Its electronic sound installations blend into, and interact with, the natural environment in outdoor spaces. They aim to activate and interact with the surrounding environment to make us aware of aspects of the acoustical nature of a given site not easily available to our naked ears.

The first in a series of sound picnics by Froze Music celebrating the four seasons, Winter is a site-specific performative installation playing continuously from 6pm and 9pm during as part of the Miami Beach Culture Crawl. Locate  the Banyan Lawn area of the Miami Beach Botanical Garden by the Collins Canal, Winter can be experienced over a casual stroll, or as a picnic, over a blanket in which case we recommend you bring your own.

Frozen Music features the work of sound artists Rene Barge, David Dunn and Gustavo Matamoros. Upcoming projects include Paranormal, commissioned by Deering Estate for its April exhibition “Home”, and Soundpaintings, a 120-channel cinematic sound installation created for Soundscape Park to premiere this year during Subtropics 25 Festival.
