The New San Francisco Tape Music Center returns to ODC Theater for its annual Festival. This three day event of fixed media audio art features an impressive and meticulously placed arrangement of sixteen speakers, immersing the audience in an exploratory and experimental sound environment focused on the listening experience. Highlights include classics by Toru Takemitsu, Ilhan Mimaroglu, Herbert Brün, Louis and Bebe Barron, Jackson MacLow and a complete evening celebrating the work of Luc Ferrari (1929-2005), including a video profile by Veronique Larcher and ELSA Productions. Featured local composers include Cenk Ergün, Maggi Payne, Joseph Anderson, Ava Mendoza, Cliff Caruthers, MaryClare Brzytwa, Thom Blum, and Matt Ingalls. In an era when 'surround sound' has become commonplace, these artists' development of sound diffusion as a compositional technique creates a sonic experience you won't soon forget. Come and enjoy this cutting edge art form at its best.
