Plans for the 1996 Experimental Music Festival are in the works! It is tentatively scheduled for November 1st, 2nd, and 3rd (Friday-Saturday-Sunday) at three separate venues around the Sacramento area. We are now accepting applicants to perform. We will need a tape, record or CD, (this is purely for determination of style, so it doesn't need to be a master quality tape) and a short bio. Groups selected will be required to send four black and white and one color photo for the press release. If you or someone you know are interested in performing, you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org at the Experimental Media Research Laboratory. If you have any questions or would like additional information about the Norcal Experimental Music Festival, contact Jay Truesdale at: email@example.com.
