We invite you to our first annual festival of experimental scored and unscored works, improvisations, and audience participation pieces! This two-day, three-concert event features a variety of styles by a diverse array of composers. Performances by EDME members, invited musicians, and guest artists will fill downtown spaces with strange and enticing sounds, including the Farmer's Market Pavilion Plaza*, First Christian Church, and New Zone Gallery. The first concert will feature a projection-mapping exhibition with light, video, and interactive visuals. The unique events, the first of their kind, are free and open to the public.
