Sound's Good for You
Springfest is an annual festival wholly curated by and highlighting new work from the UC San Diego Department of Music--the premier center on the West Coast for experimental and new music. Springfest is where emerging composers, performers and sound explorers preview their most dangerous ideas, initiate new collaborations and launch daring projects. Nowhere else in San Diego do chamber sounds, computer music, noise, sound installation, free improvisation and performance art all collide. And just in time for a much-needed seasonal ear-cleaning... Sound's good for you, right?
Most events are free and take place in the state of the art halls of the Conrad Prebys Music Center. Special events off campus include:
IMMERSION, a musical journey through the Birch Aquarium, which will take your perception for a swim in the underwater depths. And, SOUND IN SILENCE, a screening of classic silent films accompanied by live musicians.
Springfest is supported by the UCSD Department of Music, the Dean of Arts and Humanities, the GSA, and the UC Institute for Research in the Arts.
