Who are we?

The Albany Sonic Arts Collective is a new grassroots organization dedicated to building a thriving community of listeners and performers of music that exists outside of traditional boundaries. The Collective will strive to support a wide variety of music and sonic art forms, with a special emphasis on those that stress freedom and exploration of new ideas. Styles may include free improvisation, drone, noise, electroacoustic improvisation, electronic music, avant jazz, and many others.

We'll be starting off things with a monthly series of live performances in various venues around Albany. Stay tuned for details!
