From SF Weekly:
Billed enigmatically as “A Festival of Unexpected New Music,” this year’s event takes place from March 6 through 8 at the SF Jazz Center, and features a preposterously diverse program, including multiple world premieres. These include a microtonal string quartet by avant-garde stalwart Miya Masaoka, a truly ambitious multimedia installation based on avian migration by Norwegian composer Maja S.K. Ratjke, and a musical interpretation of our very own Twin Peaks (the S.F. location, not the TV show) with a trio led by Bay Area new music icon and tape music pioneer, Pauline Oliveros. But according to the festival’s founder and director, composer Charles Amirkhanian, this wildly eclectic programming results from the humblest intentions.
