America's only festival devoted to the performance of audio works projected in three-dimensional space, The San Francisco Tape Music Festival features four distinct concerts of classic audio art and new fixed media compositions by 26 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 (24 high-end loudspeakers) with the audience seated in complete darkness. It's a unique opportunity to experience music forming - literally - around you.

The 2017 Festival features two concerts showcasing the entire range of the fixed media artform, including "Then" (2014) by CURTIS ROADS. The Saturday late-night concert features longer and ambient tape pieces, including excerpts from the 1977 Soundtrack to DAVID LYNCH'S "ERASERHEAD." The Sunday evening concert is devoted to the tape music of PAULINE OLIVEROS (1932 - 2016).

The festival also performs classic works by San Francisco Tape Music Center technical director BILL MAGINNIS (1938 - 2016), computer music pioneer JEAN-CLAUDE RISSET (1938 - 2016), and Denmark's "Grandmother of Electronic Music," ELSE MARIE PADE (1924 - 2016). Compositions created with DON BUCHLA'S (1937 - 2016) original BUCHLA 100 SERIES SYNTHESIZER by Bay Area Composer WARNER JEPSON (1930 - 2011) and others will also be presented.

Recent works by international composers will be performed alongside local tape musicians DONALD SWEARINGEN, MAGGI PAYNE, KRISTIN MILTNER, THEO MATHIEN, KENT JOLLY, MATT INGALLS, CLAIRE HAAS, MATTHEW GOODHEART, SIVAN ELDAR, CLIFF CARUTHERS, THOM BLUM, and KYLE BRUCKMANN.
