IAMINDUST is an annual international music festival focusing primarily on some of the best Dark ambient and Industrial acts from around the world. It also is meant to provoke the attending artists to go beyond their usual comfort zones in the realm of performance, by utilizing the octophonic sound system we are providing just for this occasion, and also by embarking upon unique live impromptu collaborations with some of the other attending artists in an effort to create wholly new and unpredictable results.
2948 16th Street, San Francisco, CA
The LAB is an interdisciplinary arts organization which supports the development and presentation of new visual, performing, media, sonic and literary art. We assist artists in the creation of new work and showcase work of the highest quality by emerging and underrepresented experimental artists. Of particular interest is work which crosses boundaries, encourages evolving artistic and social dialogue between artists and audiences, and develops the culture and community of the San Francisco Bay Area.
THE OCTOPHONIC SOUND SYSTEM
This will be the first festival ever held using an OCTOPHONIC SOUND SYSTEM we are creating especially for this event with the kind help of local artist JAMES GOODE. All the attending artists will be invited to create an octophonic landscape for this performance to be utilized in tandem with the sets they will perform.
