The 11th Annual San Francisco Electronic Music Festival is proud to offer four evenings of stimulating performances and installations by internationally recognized artists and musicians in the electronic music field.  This year's lineup includes a wide array of electronic music pioneers, modern innovators, and emerging artists, ranging in diverse styles from electro-acoustic, costume rock, tape manipulation, noise, sound sculpture, musique concrete, kinetic sound design, free improvisation, and pop music.  The featured artists utilize instruments such as analog synthesizers, home-brewed electronics, acoustic instruments, and laptop patches.

SFEMF has invited a distinct group of artists from across the field of electronic music, including internationally-renowned sound artist Stephan Mathieu, Swiss electronic trio MKM (G. Mueller,  J. Kahn, N. Möslang), local legends Caroliner Rainbow Shadow Walking Over Waves Somewhere,  computer music pioneer professor John Chowning, kinetic sculptor Trimpin, LA-based experimentalist Joseph Hammer, multimedia artist Pod Blotz, electro-acoustic Ben Bracken, and a unique collaboration by former Nine-Inch-Nails keyboardist Alessandro Cortini (aka blindoldfreak) and synthesizer genius Don Buchla.

Beltran, Nate Boyce, Loren Chasse, Lucky Dragons, Seth Horvitz, Kadet Kuhne, and David Wilson.

The San Francisco Electronic Music Festival is an artist-run organization founded in 1999 by a committee of eight Bay Area electro-acoustic music and sound art practitioners. Its mission is to provide a highly visible public forum for the diverse community of composers and sound artists working with electronic-based technologies in the Bay Area. The Committee's goals are to establish the festival as an annual presence in the Bay Area; to foster a greater sense of community among the diverse group of Bay Area sound artists; to stimulate the creation of new electronic sound works; to increase public awareness of new sound-based technologies and their creative applications; to raise the level of discourse surrounding music and sound-art; and to raise the national and international profile of the Bay Area as a center for electronic music and sound art.
