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.
