The Future Happened: Designing the Future of Music
Museum of Design Atlanta (MODA)
(April 2020)

[ view exhibition ]

The Future Happened is an exhibition that examines how design and art deepens our relationship with music. Exploring how design can be key in sharing our stories and amplifying our power to make a difference in the world. Examining innovation and technology that enhances connections and opens doors, reinforcing our capacity to spark change.

This was the first digital-only exhibition put on by MODA, an experiment to see the potential reach for future digital experiences. I was invited by Lawrence Azerrad and MODA to help architect the user experience of the exhibit, and then design and build the website itself.

[ view the site ]

Esperanza Spalding is an award-winning jazz musician, performer, writer, and researcher based in Portland, OR, and is presently paid by Harvard University to co-create and learn with students enrolled there, working on developing creative practices that serve the restoration of people and land.

“Songwrights Apothecary Lab (a.k.a. S.A.L.) seeks to respectfully dip into the healing seas of music/musicianship/song, and distill a few grains of piquancy which carry the life-renewing flavor of the unfathomable ocean of human resiliency, then work those grains into new musical formwelas, to enhance the healing flavors and intentions innate in all works of devoted creatorship.

In this ongoing lab, we experiment with sprinkling the many distillations of S.A.L. into our song wrighting, and invite you to taste/hear these enhanced essences and flavors.”

MXP Communications is the parent company to two different local Salt Lake City based startups, The Pod Mill and Family Audio Memories. The Pod Mill is Utah’s number 1 rated podcast studio, where podcasters can come to record episodes, and let the Mill do all the hard work on the back-end–editing, cutting, mastering, and distribution. Family Audio Memories is a similar type of business, but with a different purpose. Their goal is to bring families into the podcast studio at affordable rates, to let their loved ones come and record their oral histories, telling stories, memories, and whatever else they feel important to leave to future generations. FAM then edits, cuts, and hosts those memories on a server that the families can access and share at any time.
