60x60 presents to the largest audience possible.
60x60 actively seeks to find that listener unaware of the treasure which is found in the 60 one-minute miniatures. 60x60 has been presented in places where audiences would expect mainstream programs and offers the 60x60 program to be discovered by the listener. Performance of various incarnations of 60x60 have been presented in concert halls, theater stages, museums, art galleries, public atriums, bars, nightclubs, building facades, and street windows in New York City; not to mention radio airplay, television and Internet broadcast around the world. 60x60 has been enjoyed by tens of thousands of people in venues across the globe.

The point of the project is that it enables an audience to take in and enjoy a cross section of different approaches to new music within a reasonable duration. And the purpose of Robert Voisey is to promote new music

- Malcolm Miller, Music and Vision

"The word 'viral,' comes to mind as a trendy but disquietingly accurate image for Robert Voisey's infectious enthusiasm.
He is always ready to mutate and reinfect the process as indicated to maintain the highest degree of project fever - and yes, it is spreading."

"We live in a compressed world. Executive summaries, plot synopses, speed dating, pecha kucha, sound bites,Wikipedia, and Sesame Street tell us all we need to know, and in very little time. Since 2003, NewYork composer Rob Voisey has given us a musical version with his 60x60 Project. ... 60x60 is not about scores, but about recordings. The submissions are the music; definitive, in final form - trapped, as it were, in amber. ... The project design permits a large number of composers to put representative samples of their music in front of audiences. I trace project success to the composers who form its collaborators, hosts, and director. The grass-roots, all-volunteer philosophy translates into an eclectic blend of styles, genres and aesthetics. The result: a representative survey of today's music on the cutting edge."

- By Richard Arnest, Sounding Board Spring 2011

there's one thing you can say for sure,
it won't be boring.
