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 programs 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 2014 Festival features classic works by François Bayle, Willem de Ridder with The Hafler Trio, Denis Smalley, Hildegard Westerkamp, and Iannis Xenakis. Other highlights include a recorded invocation from sound pioneer Alexander Graham Bell, Melodica, a rarely-heard tape-loop piece by Steve Reich from 1966, and a presentation of The Sounds of Earth, collaborative sound collage from Voyager's Golden Record, now traveling through interstellar space.

In addition there will be pieces by international and local composers, including Jacob Felix Heule, Aaron Oppenheim, Maggi Payne, and Bruno Ruviaro, and a variety of premieres and established pieces by members of the San Francisco Tape Music Collective, Matt Ingalls, Cliff Caruthers, Thom Blum, and Joseph Anderson.
