New West Electro-Acoustic Music Organization (NWEAMO)

.:NWEAMO Homepage:.

The....New West Electro-Acoustic Music Organization (NWEAMO) is an organization dedicated to the promotion of music that involves the creative use of computers and electronics, and to putting electro-acoustic composers and musicians in the Pacific Northwest in contact with the international electronic music community. (Quite a mouthful.)

Ever year they have a "worldwide" music festival that covers various cities and music styles. They are currently accepting submissions for the 2006 festival entitled Pulse: the Influence of Africa.

The purpose of this year's festival is for the artist's personal interpretation of African pulse, rhythms, music, dances, cultures, traditions, philosophies, and spiritual practices.

This year's festival plans to take place in:
* Portland, OR - Sep. 24
* San Diego, CA - Sep. 30 & Oct. 1, 2006
* Morelia, Mexico - TBA
* Italy - TBA

With support from assistance from the .:Regional Arts and Culture Council:., the .:Quebec Art Council:., and .:San Diego State University:..

Overall pretty impressive. If you are looking to signup or learn more information about the event and its organizers please visit their site. .:NWEAMO:.
