Moving Sounds was founded together with Michel Galante and the Argento New Music Project in 2009.

“The Moving Sounds Festival means its title to be taken in every possible way. The works performed during this event are meant to be moving, if not always emotionally then viscerally or intellectually.” - Allan Kozinn, The New York Times

"Our goal is that artists and audiences alike leave the festival richer, more open, and less sheltered as a result of organized exposure to both familiar and unfamiliar art." -Michel Galante, Moving Sounds Co-founder, Argento
