Los Angeles-based artists Casey Anderson and Scott Cazan present new and recent live-electronic work as part of a series of events celebrating the Experimental Music Yearbook’s weekend of San Francisco events. Anderson will present new work interfacing custom circuitry/hardware with improvisatory, digital structures to explore the acoustical properties of musical and non-musical objects. Cazan will present new work involving the use of custom software/hardware feedback networks where misunderstanding, chance, and chaotic elements in algorithms serve to generate new audio and visual information.

The Experimental Music Yearbook is pleased to present a concert at the Center for New Music (55 Taylor St. San Francisco, CA) featuring works from across the musical spectrum. Now entering its 5th year, the Experimental Music Yearbook ( is a curated online repository of contemporary experimental music. Downloadable scores, along with audio from past performances, showcase the diversity of compositional techniques and performances practices that are in use today. This concert presentation will have a dual focus. The first half features work from 2012 guest editor Laura Steenberge and her colleagues at Stanford University. The second half will feature works from throughout the years of the Yearbook’s existence.

All of the pieces will be performed by the composers themselves and the EMY Players, a performance group dedicated to the realization of these works.
