Berkeley, California; June 17, 2022; Outsound Presents announces its lineup for the 2022 Annual Outsound New Music Summit taking place from July 29th through August 1st, at the Berkeley Finnish Hall located at 1970 Chestnut Street in Berkeley California. Advance tickets now on sale at Eventbrite. The New Music Summit is co-presented by Bay Area radio station KFJC 89.7FM located on the campus of Foothill Junior College in Los Altos Hills.

After a two-year hiatus, we are excited to bring back one of the most celebrated Bay Area festivals, the Outsound New Music Summit. It will take place over four nights July 29 - August 1, 2022, at the iconic Berkeley Finnish Hall.

The Summit opens with Long Tone Sally, a 15-piece trombone ensemble created by composer Rob Ewing, followed by the legendary ROVA Saxophone Quartet celebrating over 40 years of performance. Bay Area educator and instrument inventor Krys Bobrowski will join inimitable gong player Karen Stackpole for a special set of Bobrowski’s water-based Gliss Glass suite of music. Following this duet will be a quartet featuring Alexandra Buschman-Román, David Lim, Danishta Rivero, and Ven Voisey, presenting Scaffold is a compositional structure of audible cues and field recordings for four performers, four directions in four movements for improvised voice and electronics assembled by Ven Voisey. Next up will be local bassist David Leikam and his psychedelic jazz quartet zBug, followed by T.D. Skatchit & Co lead by musician/filmmaker David Michalak, celebrating over 10 years of playable skatchart invented by the late Tom Nunn. Oakland based vocalist Aurora Josephson and ROVA saxophonist Bruce Ackley will join the skatchit chaos as  special guests. The final night will be anchored by San Francisco underground freak art-rock bands Tri-Cornered Tent Show and Moira Scar. Unclassifiable since the 1970s, Tri-Cornered Tent Show’s latest sonic incarnation calls its sound “an avant-psych blues freak-out.” Moira Scar will close out the Summit presenting their signature art-punk dark-wave freak-deathrock from Oakland California, founded by  Roxy Monoxide and LuLu Gamma Ray (also known as Roxzan Zatan and Lu Lucifer), who are trans and non-binary queer femmes, non-conformist, anti-racist, anti-fascist, and always freaking.
