28 August 2013 | Melbourne-based multidisciplinary artist and musician Marco Fusinato is one of 16 artists selected for Soundings: A Contemporary Score, the first major sound exhibition to be held in New York's Museum of Modern Art.

The sound-based works selected for the exhibition aim to provoke an active and immersive experience that connects visitors in a shared space. The works engage with a diverse range of disciplines including architecture, computer programming and music.

Fusinato is showing works from his
Mass Black Implosion series. This is an ongoing body of work where he draws on scores written by pioneering avant-garde composers, choosing a single note as a focus point and then connecting it to every other note on the page. The work shown above is based on a score by post-World War II Greek composer Iannis Xenakis. Soundings: A Contemporary Score will run in MoMA's special exhibitions gallery on the third floor until 3 November 2013.
