Due volte Rova in streaming a sostegno del Center for New Music di San Francisco, in tempi ancora assai difficili per le attività artistiche e musicali in presenza: Rova On The Air, dal vivo in studio con diversi brani nuovi e alcune anticipazioni del prossimo album atteso a settembre su ESP-Disk.

The Center for New Music was founded in 2012, and is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation. It fosters contemporary music’s growth by giving practicing artists access to professional resources and expertise, and by providing them with opportunities for sharing knowledge and exploring new ideas. The Center serves the practitioners of creative, non-commercial music by providing the resources they need, including space to work, rehearse, and perform, access to a like-minded community, and access to media resources. Through these services, the Center seeks to support and build the community of new music to encourage its efficiency, growth, integration, and excellence.

The Center acts as a steward for our community, including but not limited to composers, performers, producers, presenters, teachers, students, listeners, scholars, advocates, engineers, curators, collaborators, critics, and organizers. By valuing diversity and inclusion, fair treatment of members, fair payment of participating artists, and advocacy for the growth and integration of our community, the Center will provide a platform for communication, collaboration, outreach, program development, incubation of new artists, engagement of new listeners, and increased activity for the business of new music.

The Center was conceived in 2011 by composer-performers Adam Fong and Brent Miller. Through their experience as both artists and administrators in the Bay Area new music scene, and resulting from a thorough community needs assessment, they designed a plan to provide a flexible space for new music: during the day the Center functions as an administrative and research hub, a space to work, meet, learn, and rehearse; in the evenings it hosts workshops and affordably-priced concerts of innovative music.

In October of 2012, the Center for New Music San Francisco signed a lease on the ground level retail space at 55 Taylor Street. Located one-half block from a bustling and rapidly changing Market Street corridor, this site is comprised of 4,400 square feet, with a main gallery space that can accommodate performing ensembles solo to quintet, and room for up to 100 audience members. While pursuing non-profit status, the Center was fiscally sponsored by Rova:Arts.
