For over a decade, people have gathered together to listen to and perform experimental electronic and electro-acoustic music, to swap gear and ideas, and to find like-minded life-long friends under the umbrella of electro-music.com. These gatherings have fostered an eclectic and diverse community of musicians and makers, improvisers and composers, amateurs and academics. The strangest thing about the electro-music community? That this might be the first time you’ve ever heard of it.
For the past six years, the annual electro-music festival has been held in Huguenot, NY. As of the last day of 2016’s electro-music festival, the upstate New York days have been uploaded to the archive.

The Sound of Thunder
The Sound of Thunder was inspired by the final movement of T.S. Eliot’s ‘The Waste Land’, ‘What the Thunder Said’; and also by the Brihadaranyaka Upanishad, from which it draws heavily. Each movement is based on one of the four concepts from the Upanishad, as used by Eliot: Datta (Charity), Dayadhvam (Mercy), Damyata (Restraint), and Shantih (Peace).
