our theme for our time together in 2022 will is modeled on the Ancient Greek symposiums. gatherings each day
-- approximately from noon to dinnertime -- with food, drink, possible readings, performances, and so on.
there will be at least one 'master of ceremony' each day who 'cares for' the group. each day there will also
be a theme a la Plato's dialogues. these daily themes are intended as impulses, not strict delimitations.
these themes and the schedule will be announced and shared shortly.
the co-incidence festival is a gathering of experimental composer-performers
this project is based on an expanded view of what constitutes art, music, and the traditional concert. following the example of the revolutionary arts community Black Mountain College, it will bring together a group of radical artists operating in the boundary-zones of their practice to take part in a festival curated as ‘social sculpture.’ reflecting the values of experimental music, co-incidence will be allowed to grow organically, strongly influenced by the artists who attend: the directors simply provide a time, space, and loose framework.

over coffee in Maine in the Summer of 2015,
had a far too grandiose idea: "let's do our own music festival!" (un)fortunately, they don't know when to stop. and here we are, with the co-incidence festival which kicked off its first season in January 2017. we wanted to fill a perceived gap in support for experimental composer/performers in the U.S. with a music festival focused on experimental music and built as an experimental composer might build a piece.
