The 15th annual San Francisco Electronic Music Festival

San Francisco’s most prominent festival dedicated to electronic music celebrates its fifteenth season with four exciting nights of performances featuring emerging and internationally renowned artists.

The 15th Annual San Francisco Electronic Music Festival is proud to offer four evenings of stimulating performances by a diverse cadre of composers and performers in the electronic music field. This year's lineup includes a wide variety of electronic music, ranging from live tape collage, noise, musique concrete, and sound design to free improvisation. The featured artists utilize instruments such as analog synthesizers, home-brewed electronics, acoustic instruments, and laptop patches.

SFEMF has invited a distinctive group of artists from across the field of electronic music. On the main stage at Brava Theater Center we are presenting UK-based industrial-ambient legends :zoviet*france:, renowned electronic composer Nic Collins (Chicago), field recording maverick and live tape collagist Aki Onda (New York), violist/composer Ezra Buchla, German sound artist and circuit bender Joker Nies (Cologne), ambient electronic composer Sarah Davachi, violinist/composer Christina Stanley, electro-acoustic artist Xô Xinh, and ambient loop composer Julia Mazawa. And on our special opening night concert at the Exploratorium's Kanbar Forum, composer David Dunn and antic keyboardist Head Boggle (with live visuals by Caitlin Denny) will be playing through the immersive Meyer Sound Constellation system.
