SD Soundings (formerly known as Springfest) is an annual festival wholly curated by and highlighting new work from the UC San Diego Department of Music--the premier center on the West Coast for experimental and new music. SD Soundings is where emerging composers, performers and sound explorers preview their most dangerous ideas, initiate new collaborations and launch daring projects. Nowhere else in San Diego do chamber sounds, computer music, noise, sound installation, free improvisation and performance art all collide. And just in time for a much-needed seasonal ear-cleaning... Sound's good for you, right?

SD Soundings is supported by the UC San Diego Department of Music, the Dean of Arts and Humanities, and the Graduate Student Association.
