general admission

You and your guests must be fully vaccinated to attend this event, proof of vaccination is required upon arrival.

With guidance from the San Francisco Department of Public Health, all patrons are required to wear masks at all times while in the Atrium Theater and the San Francisco War Memorial and Performing Arts Center.
Heralded by NPR as a “Who’s Who of the avant-garde” and The Wire as “a forum for forward thinking composers and an opportunity to hear performances of a uniformly challenging and rigorous nature,” San Francisco’s only international festival of avant-garde music returns to celebrate its milestone 25th anniversary!

Other Minds Festival 25: “Moment’s Notice” will bring to the stage twenty-six of the greatest living artists working in the field of improvised music. Across four nights, OM 25 features a rare convergence of pioneering icons of free improvised music side-by-side with the emerging artists whose work is at once a continuance and an expansion of the jazz avant-garde.

Festival artists include MacArthur Genius Award winners Mary Halvorson and Tyshawn Sorey; Guggenheim Fellows Jen Shyu, Wadada Leo Smith, and Zeena Parkins; Doris Duke Performing Artist Award winners William Parker and Myra Melford; NEA Jazz Masters Anthony Braxton and Roscoe Mitchell; Berlin Prize Awardee Elliott Sharp; and several additional performers whose music is a vital expression of the traditions of improvisation.

Performances will cross disciplines to include dance, theater, and video including pianist/composer Myra Melford who will partner with Butoh dancer Oguri; William Parker’s dance/theater work, The Sky is Trembling featuring dancer Patricia Nicholson; Wadada Leo Smith’s Reflections and Meditations on Monk in collaboration with live video artist Jesse Gilbert; and Jen Shyu’s luminous Nine Doors, a theatrical work heralded by the New York Times as a “dizzying,” “imaginative ritual” sung in multiple languages and performed by Shyu on a variety of instruments.

Other Minds is pleased to announce the participation of jazz author and radio producer Nate Chinen (pronounced chih-NEHN) as moderator of our pre-concert panel discussions at Other Minds Festival 25. Panels will take place an hour before showtime, 7pm October 14-16 and 3pm October 17, and will be available for viewing at both the live presentation and the streamed event.

Other Minds

About Other Minds

Founded in 1992, Other Minds is a leading proponent for new and experimental music in all its forms, bringing together artists and audiences of diverse traditions, generations and cultural backgrounds. By fostering cross-cultural exchange and creative dialogue, and by encouraging exploration of areas in new music seldom touched upon by mainstream music institutions, OM is committed to expanding and reshaping the definition of what constitutes “serious music.” From festival concerts, weekly radio broadcasts, and the commissioning of new works, to producing and releasing CDs, to archival preservation of thousands of concerts and composer interviews (which OM distributes free on the internet), OM has become one of the world’s major conservators of new music’s ecology.
