La leggerezza delle città in San Francisco

San Francisco Tape Music Festival 2012

On Saturday 21 January, La leggerezza delle città will be played as part of the 2012 edi­tion of the San Francisco Tape Music Festival. The three-day fest­ival will, among other things, cel­eb­rate the 100th birthday of John Cage along­side a se­lec­tion of elec­tronic music from around the world, in­cluding pieces by Joseph Anderson, Matthew Barnard, Martin Bédard, Christopher Burns, Dan Joseph, Orestis Karamanlis, Stelios Manousakis, Émilie Payeur, Alexander Schubert, Adam Basanta and John Young.

Thanks go to Matt Ingalls and the rest of the fest­ival team for or­gan­ising everything and pro­gram­ming my piece. And as al­ways Irma and Davitxun, without whom the piece wouldn’t exist.
