Playback Room (2017): Tate Modern gave a curated a collective listening talk on Women Sound Producers.

Join us for a series of intimate listening seminars with selected artists

“Playback Room” considers studio music as a distinctive art form and its recorded version as the pinnacle of many musicians’ production. This series of intimate listening seminars invites a range of artists to share and discuss their own selection of music and recordings that have been an important source of inspiration to their work and lives.

Led by music and culture critic Laura Snapes, this event includes an out-of-hours opportunity to explore the Wolfgang Tillmans exhibition.

Following 30 minutes of selected music our artists lead an hour-long conversation, all taking place within this major exhibition showcasing Wolfgang Tillmans’ expanded practice.

Wolfgang Tillmans’ Playback Room is a space conceived by the artist specifically for listening to recorded music. While museums are dedicated to the contemplation of works of visual art and concert halls allow us to experience live music, no comparable venues exist where visitors can listen to music in its optimum sound quality.
