Time Out says

Art and music lovers, get excited: ArtScience Museum is celebrating its 10th birthday with a new exhibition. Opening on August 28, Orchestral Manoeuvres features over 32 artists and composers from eight countries who explore sound through sculpture, installation and music.

Orchestral Manoeuvres, curated by ArtScience Museum, celebrates this art form through the work of some of the world’s leading artists whose explorations of the sonic landscape encourage visitors to listen more closely to the sounds around us. The exhibition presents sound art projects, early music notation, experimental scores, noise-making sculptures, video installations and contemporary artworks. One of the key highlights is a presentation of the landmark artwork, The Forty Part Motet by Janet Cardiff, which will be showing for the first time in Southeast Asia.

Also watch out for renowned artists like English singer-songwriter Phil Collins, the one and only Yoko Ono and an iconic figure of early Futurism, Luigi Russolo.

Other artists in the exhibition include Song-Ming Ang (Singapore), John Cage (USA), Chen Zhen (China), Hsiao Sheng-Chien (Taiwan), Jeremy Deller (UK), Zul Mahmod (Singapore), Robert Morris (USA), Carsten Nicolai (Germany), Pauline Oliveros (USA), Hannah Perry (UK), Christine Sun Kim (USA), Gillian Wearing (UK), and Samson Young (Hong Kong).

Executive Director of ASM, Honor Harger says: "We have brought some of the most striking contemporary artworks made over the past two decades to Singapore, including Janet Cardiff's extraordinary installation, The Forty Part Motet. The exhibition we have made together will not be a quiet experience. It is not unplugged. It is not a concert. It is not a performance. It is not a lecture. It is instead a complex soundscape, with different stories and voices overlapping as visitors make their way through the galleries. We hope the experience of visiting Orchestral Manoeuvres will inspire our visitors to feel differently about sound and music."
