Since 1999, The Big Sur Experimental Music Festival has presented a
wide variety of adventurous modern music: electronic, experimental improv,
noise, free-jazz and ambient music from artists across the USA, Europe and
Australia. This year, the festival will be presented in the revolutionary
format of a "Sound/Shift". This type of event, the brainchild of Baltimore
event organizer John Berndt, brings large numbers of musicians together to
collaborate in unpredicted ways, often with stunning results. For the Big
Sur event, approximately 100 musicians will be placed in overlapping
shifts, often with people they've never played with before. The group 
from 3 to 30, with an average of 4-5 musicians performing at any given 
With at least one personnel switch every 10 minutes, the audience will be
treated to the equivalent of 96 different ensembles over the course of two
8-hour "pieces". What does 7.5 tons of musician sound like? Come find out!
This is a benefit for the Henry Miller Memorial Library.
