The San Francisco Tape Music Festival 2018

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 evenings 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.

Returning to San Francisco’s Center for New Music for their first concert of 2018, sfSoundGroup presents an evening of experimental and open form compositions with guest composer/performer DAN JOSEPH.

The program will include the late PAULINE OLIVEROS’ classic text score "Earth Ears", Joseph’s "Notes & Queries", selections from Los Angeles based composer MICHAEL PISARO'S "harmony series", and sfSound’s own "Tinnitus Insect Volume Knobs" project that explores the psychoacoustic phenomena of "difference tones" by performing only closely-tuned pitches above 1000Hz.

Appearing in the Bay Area for the first time since 2014, Joseph will perform on hammer dulcimer, with musicians of the sfSoundGroup.

Dan Joseph, hammer duclimer
Erik Ulman, violin
Monica Scott, cello
Lisa Mezzacappa, bass
John Ingle, saxophone
Matt Ingalls, clarinets
Diane Grubbe, flute
Tom Dambly, trumpet
Kyle Bruckmann, oboe and english horn

DAN JOSEPH is a composer, performer, writer and curator based in New York City. For the past fifteen years, the hammer dulcimer has been the primary vehicle for his music and he is active as a performer with his own chamber ensemble, The Dan Joseph Ensemble, as well as in various improvisational collaborations and as a soloist. He produces the monthly music and sound series Musical Ecologies in Park Slope, Brooklyn, and is a contributing writer to The Brooklyn Rail, Musicworks Magazine and NewMusicBox.org. In 2017, the venerable New York based new music label XI Records released a 2 CD retrospective of his electroacoustic and mixed-media works titled Electroacoustic Works.
