An Exhibition of Sound Art

FINAL WEEKEND October 31 & November 1 10:00am-4:00pm

Drop by for free, self-guided tours. No check-in or reservations required.

Open your ears to new ways of listening with In the Garden of Sonic Delights, an exhibition of sound art that offers the opportunity to explore nature and soundscapes. Awaiting your discovery are eight specially commissioned site-specific artworks by some of the world’s most sought-after artists working in the medium of sound. Each artist has drawn inspiration from their chosen location, creating work that is mindful of the natural and human-made sounds and systems already present in the environment, while engaging each site’s unique characteristics, be they acoustic, historic, architectural, or aesthetic.

Caramoor’s 2015 In the Garden of Sonic Delights artists include:

Ranjit Bhatnagar – Stone Song

Betsey Biggs – Sunken Gardens

Annea Lockwood and Bob Bielecki – Wild Energy

Stephan Moore – Diacousticon

Scott Smallwood – Coronium 3500 (Lucie’s Halo)

Suzanne Thorpe – Listening Is As Listening Does

Trimpin – The Pianohouse

Stephen Vitiello and Bob Bielecki – You Are The Sweet Spot

Following its 2014 debut, In the Garden of Sonic Delights has shifted from an exhibition spanning across Westchester County to an opportunity to explore sound and nature at Caramoor and Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture. We welcome you to encounter and enjoy the artworks for free anytime you come to a Caramoor event.

Caramoor is located at 149 Girdle Ridge Road, Katonah, New York 10536 in Westchester County, 40 miles northeast of New York City. Visit Caramoor.
