An Instrument for Live Performance
Oda artists control every detail of the performances you hear.
They craft their sound on the same speakers you listen through.
They can activate your speakers with the press of a button.
They can play to you in your home, not on a phone or in a browser.
It's like two cans and a string.
As it should be.
Live Performances,
Commissioned For Oda
Each season we present a series of truly singular live performances.
We engage experimentalists, storytellers, and audio pioneers to create works that unfold over time.
Oda’s unique format even allows us to engage legendary artists unable to perform outside of their homes.
Spend Every Weekend With a New Artist
A New Kind of Programming
UNIQUE, CYCLICAL, THEMATIC, EPISODIC
We follow a seasonal programming model, with a new lineup of performers appearing on Oda every winter, spring, summer and fall. The artists below will perform during our first two seasons, this winter and spring (December 21 - June 20th), and we'll be announcing more over the next few weeks.

A Sustainable Platform
We're working to create a platform that's sustainable. That's a viable long-term business for us, and for the artists you love.
We sell our speakers at a very low markup. Most of our income comes from our $79/season membership, and over 70% of that income goes directly to pay artists and production costs.
We are completely membership supported. We don't sell ads, we don't sell your data, and we don't spy on you.
Built Like an Instrument
Oda's Secret to Unique and Beautiful Sound
Oda Speakers are built using techniques drawn from traditional crafts like bookbinding, light aircraft construction, and, of course, luthiery.
They’re made of wood, glass, cotton, and steel: materials that are humble and human, not technological.
Simply put: They're built like instruments, so they make instruments sound beautiful.
Painstakingly Tuned

The Intuition of an Artist
Oda’s designer, Perry Brandston, grew up in New York institutions like CBGB and Carnegie Hall. He has been making speakers most of his life. Conceived and designed in the East Village of Manhattan, we have been perfecting these speakers since 2016.

Transformed by a Leading Acoustician
Benjamin Zenker of the University of Dresden, a world-leading acoustician, transformed the speakers into something worthy of our mission; music that is live for the artist and for you. His design rejects heavy audio filters and brings listeners an honest experience.
A Physical Sound
This is the heart of it: the soundboard.
We've spent three years tuning this piece of wood
Resonant
Music radiates from a resonant wood panel, just like the body of a cello. Cascading sound like the light from a chandelier.
Physical
You can almost touch the sound. Stereoscopic vocals, piano, strings and brass with uncanny presence, clarity and warmth.
Dimensional
A sound that’s dimensional. A sound that makes it feel like the artist is just inches away from you.
The shift in quality and texture in the audio was notable [...] it sounded like Laraaji was actually in the room
The Quietus
...a crisp, realistic sound energy that mimics a live performance, right down to the slight imperfections of the instruments...
Billboard
...disturbingly intimate…
