Electro-Music.com has announced Electro-Music 2008, a conference and music festival to be held in Kingsport, Tennessee, from August 14 to 16. The event will focus on musical styles and topics ranging from musique concrète and modular synthesis to circuit bending and algorithmic composition. Anyone interested in electroacoustic or electronic music is invited to attend. The festival offers opportunities for participants to perform their music, present lectures, give demonstrations, take part in jam sessions, or simply watch and listen as others take to the stage.
For the past three years, Philadelphia has hosted the Electro-Music festival. This year's gathering is the first in Kingsport, and at press time, the schedule had not yet been announced. You can purchase a three-day pass for $50 at the Electro-Music.com Web site (electro-music.com/event2008).
