James Ferraro: 100%

James Ferraro: 100% is an exhibition in three parts, featuring new works by musician James Ferraro intended for specific sites within the infrastructure of MoMA PS1. For Ferraro, hotel lounge playlists, elevator music, and ringtones have become psychological and architectural components to the space of commerce and daily life. Such audio helps smooth the interactions between people, and between individuals and computer systems. 100% examines automated systems in order to highlight moments when such systems fail or malfunction, interrupting the flow of communication and capital. This webpage exhibits Eco – Savage Suite (2014), a suite of ringtones that are free for download.

The exhibition continues with Saint Prius (2014), a composition Ferraro made as hold music for MoMA PS1’s phone system (call 718-784-2084); and Dubai Dream Tone (2014), a work created for the museum’s elevator.

James Ferraro: 100% is organized by Christopher Y. Lew, Assistant Curator, MoMA PS1.

The exhibition is made possible by Matthew McNulty.
