The San Francisco Tape Music Festival 2018 8PM Show


San Francisco, United States

The San Francisco Tape Music Festival 2018 8PM Show
The 2018 Festival's first two concerts showcase the entire range of the “fixed media” artform; the Saturday late-night show presents longer, psychedelic, and ambient tape pieces; and the Sunday concert features an entire concert of “audio postcards” and “sound walk” compositions. Throughout the festival, composers from the empreintes DIGITALes label will be highlighted. 

Remembering the pioneering work of one of the fathers of musique concrète, Pierre Henry (1927-2017), the festival presents a performance of his seminal work, Variations For a Door And a Sigh (1963). Other tape music classics include Karlheinz Stockhausen's quadraphonic Gesang der Jünglinge (1956) and James Tenney's proto-plunderphonic composition, Collage No.1 (Blue Suede) (1961). 

Recent works by international artists Hildegard Westerkamp, Jonty Harrison, Francis Dhomont, Natasha Barrett, and others will be performed alongside bay area composers Thom Blum, Cliff Caruthers, Nathan Corder, Matt Ingalls, Fernando Lopez-Lezscano, Maggi Payne, Adam Sohn, Sophia Shen / Gabby Wen, Tim Walters, and Chamberlain Zhang.
