17th Annual Outsound New Music Summit
The Bay Area's Creative Music Festival
Touch the Gear Expo
Outsound's original public event Touch the Gear is a hands-on, family-friendly event that allows the public to roam among 25-30 musicians and inventors with their various different configurations of “gear”--everything from oscillators and electronics, to planks of wood with strings attached. All attendees get to ask questions, make sound and experience how the instruments work, in an environment that demystifies technology while inspiring creativity.
