February 25th
The Experimental Music Yearbook
Issue Project Room, New York, NY

Now entering its 4th year, The Experimental Music Yearbook (www.experimentalmusicyearbook.com) is an online repository for composers, performers, and the public to glean the methods and styles of various artists working in the experimental music tradition. As the modes of experimentation in the arts change from year to year, the Experimental Music Yearbook’s annual issues will build into a comprehensive, and varied, database of experimentation in music/sound.

For this concert, the editors will select highlights from the first three years to spotlight the different methods composers use to create their music. Differing in concept and execution, the compositions display the full range given to performers in realizing works in the experimental tradition.
