General Admission
Composers from five countries will convene for the 27th Other Minds Festival, an international annual showcase for composers held this year at San Francisco’s Taube Atrium Theater November 15-18, 2023.

Our opening concert includes the American premiere of a new work for electronics, gongs, and tam-tams by Swedish sound artist and composer Ellen Arkbro and Australian percussionist Will Guthrie. The duo will be followed by an improvised set by the American pianist and composer Craig Taborn, whose music melding the complexity of Iannis Xenakis with the sweetness of Francis Poulenc has been hailed by the New York Times for its “proud refusal to cater to expectations about what jazz, or even music, should be.”

On Night 2, electronic music pioneer Morton Subotnick performs As I Live and Breathe alongside German video artist Lillevan and Canadian-American composer Linda Bouchard performs music from her Live Structures Project with Ensemble TriOcular +.

Night 3 opens with the first live performance of Mary Kouyoumdjian‘s They Will Take My Island, a string octet about the life of Armenian-American abstract expressionist painter Arshile Gorky with film by Atom Egoyan, world and American premieres by leading Armenian composer and pianist Artur Avanesov, and a performance of works by American composer Carl Stone by Sarah Cahill, Paul Dresher, Ned Rothenberg, and the composer.

On the final evening, Other Minds presents the world premiere of a newly commissioned work for Friction Quartet by Norwegian composer and polymath Eivind Buene. Bora Yoon performs a multimedia set for live electronics, voice, and violin with visual collaborator Joshue Ott. We celebrate the conclusion of our festival with a performance of Neil Rolnick‘s monumental Lockdown Fantasies, a work for piano and electronics performed by Geoffrey Burleson, which was included on Rolnick’s recent Other Minds Records CD release.

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.
