Simon Steen-Andersen at the Other Minds Festival
Now in its 17th year, the annual Other Minds Festival of New Music invites nine 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.
Simon Steen-Andersen has been chosen as one of the composers to be featured at this year's festival, and on March 1, the first day of concerts, four works by Steen-Andersen are to be performed by the Norwegian new music ensemble asamisimasa. The ensemble has had a longstanding collaboration with the composer, with numerous performances and an album with Steen-Andersen compositions on the resume.
