Established in 2004, Sound Series features a broad range of artists and bands from around the world that blur genres of contemporary independent music. These live music performances challenge conventional perceptions of art and provide audiences with diverse performance experiences.
The Sound Series is inspired by Warhol’s extensive involvement in music as an album cover designer, manager of the Velvet Underground, and record producer, with connections to bands such as the Rolling Stones, Blondie, and The Cars.
These music performances take place in the museum’s intimate theater or silver-walled entrance space. The Sound Series also reaches into the community, utilizing venues such as Oakland’s Carnegie Music Hall and Carnegie Lecture Hall.
