The LAB, 2948 16th Street, San Francisco
$20 general, $12 students

Intrepid festival-goers will again enjoy the music of four young innovators, selected from an international pool of applicants: emerging composers D. Edward Davis (Durham, NC), John P. Hastings (Brooklyn, NY), Peter Swednsen (Oberlin, OH), and Jen Wang (Berkeley, CA) will participate in a series of events including lecture-presentations, panel discussions, workshops, and seminars, and have the opportunity to pick the brains of all of this year's featured composers. The experience will culminate in this concert featuring new and revised music by all four composers, performed by three of the Bay Area's top percussionists Chris Froh, Dan Kennedy, and Loren Mach, plus a special set of works by John Cage.

Tickets available separately, from Brown Paper Tickets or (800) 838-3006

About the Festival
Now in its 17th year, the annual Other Minds Festival of New Music invites eight of the most innovative artists from around the world to the San Francisco Bay Area for a four-day residency at the Djerassi Resident Artists Program in Woodside, California, and three days of concerts, panel discussions, and symposia in San Francisco. Known for featuring illustrious guest performers, a significant number of world premieres, and productions that incorporate new technologies and multidisciplinary collaborations, the Festival brings together composers who represent all points of the musical spectrum and push the creative possibilities of their respective disciplines. The Los Angeles Times has called the OM Festival "the premier new music festival on the West Coast.
