The San Francisco Tape Music Festival 2019


America's only festival devoted to the performance of audio works projected in three-dimensional space, The San Francisco Tape Music Festival features three distinct evenings of classic audio art and new fixed media compositions by 20 local and international composers. Hear members of the SF Tape Music Collective, along with guest composers, shape the sound live over a pristine surround system consisting of 24 high-end loudspeakers while the audience is seated in complete darkness. It's a unique opportunity to experience music forming - literally - around you.

The 2019 Festival features contemporary “fixed media” compositions alongside classic works from 50 years ago. The FREE Saturday 10:30pm show presents late-night-appropriate works that are more on the ambient and long-form-exploration side of the spectrum.
