The 2011 Outsound Music Summit begins this Sunday at the Community Music Center, 544 Capp Street in San Francisco. I am planning to be the every night, and will be live tweeting @catsynth with hashtag #outsound for those who wish to follow vicariously and to dialog with friends and supporters. Of course, the best experience of any musical performance is to attend in person. Visit our Summit website for more information about the schedule and tickets.
The festivities kick off on Sunday with the annual Touch the Gear Expo. I will be participating again this year with gear that reflects the music that I have been doing over the past year, i.e., so think small devices. There will also be interesting DIY electronic and acoustic gear, musical art and novel repurposing of mainstream gear for experimental music.
