The mission of the nonprofit SUBTROPICS is to enable experimental music & sound art.


To fulfill this mission, SUBTROPICS produces new work through ARTIST RESIDENCIES and RECORDING SERVICES.


It presents it to broad audiences through the LISTENING GALLERY, FROZEN MUSIC, and the SUBTROPICS BIENNIAL of experimental music and sound art. Its annual programming includes performances, a yearly MARATHON concert—showcasing Miami based artists—and the LISTENING CLUB—a curated series dedicated to listening and discussion.


Subtropics presents programs to small audiences of up to 50 at its Lincoln Road urban sound studio and performance space, AUDIOTHEQUE, and streams them live online via SPECTACULAR.MEDIA to wider audiences worldwide.
SUBTROPICS EDITIONS is an upcoming publishing initiative that will make extensive use of our vast SUBTROPICS ARCHIVE of recordings documenting experimental music in South Florida since 1975.
