The International Cities of Advanced Sound is a network of international electronic music festivals that “aims to spark dialogue, knowledge exchange and mutual support amongst international organizations engaged with experimental sound cultures.” They help support 23 festivals world wide, with 3 in the United States. The Communikey (CKMY) Festival, one of these three, begins on 4/10 in Boulder, Colorado.
With an impressive line up of events and an even more impressive list of sponsors, the non profit organization that runs the Communikey Festival uses some wonderful language to explain being a non profit that supports electronic music. Their mission boasts that they “facilitate forward thinking cultural experiences that emphasize the intersection of sound, design and technology in artistic forms.” Just…. wow.
