The Sound in Space Festival is an experimental music festival in Los Angeles that premiered in February of 2008. In the Fall of 2007 I approached Lara Bank, the director of the Sea and Space Explorations gallery, about the possibility of presenting a weekend of experimental sound events at her gallery. To my surprise Lara generously offered the month of February 2008 and the idea for an experimental sound festival was born. Lara and I asked composer Aaron Drake to help us curate and we were on our way. Since then the three of us have co-curated and produced 26 concerts, numerous sound installations, and worked with over 125 sound, video, and performance artists from around the globe.
The 2009 festival was the subject for the cover story for LA Metro Mix Magazine. You can read the article here.
