Charles Amirkhanian has been promoting modern music in San Francisco for so long, some of it has become classical by now.

The co-founder of Other Minds, which launched as a music festival in 1993 and has since expanded into a record label and concert series, Amirkhanian’s goal is to bring new sounds to the city.

This weekend, he’ll kick off the 24th edition of the festival with a visit from the Arditti String Quartet of London, performing microtonal music by Ivan Wyschnegradsky. More shows will follow this summer.
