NYsoundCircuit is a multimedia salon series showcasing various arts disciplines and bringing their audiences together in an engaging environment for a full evening of works by contemporary artists.

NYsoundCircuit brings you a continuous musical and visual experience of alternating live instrumentalists, singers, electronic music artists, visual artists, and more that are propulsive, engaging, and experimental. By providing a relaxed and sonically charged atmosphere, NYsoundCircuit gives you the new and daring on your own terms for a completely unfiltered experience.

At NYsoundCircuit, we believe in the integrated experience of art in the 21st century. The mission of NYsoundCircuit is to bring admirers of various artistic disciplines together providing more exposure to those disciplines and their artists, to foster new collaborations, to provide creative and social opportunities for artists who may not have opportunities otherwise, and to provide new communities of artistic experience and development. These sorts of encounters not only help enrich an artist’s livelihood and work, or the audience’s diet of experience, but the greater community and region as a whole.
