Indexical

Santa Cruz, CA            

Indexical is a composer-run group facilitating the long-term development of projects in close collaboration with artists. We focus on new chamber and experimental music, with a particular interest in music that lies outside of the aesthetic boundaries of major musical institutions. We are based in Santa Cruz, California, working with artists around the world, producing events across the San Francisco Bay Area and New York City.

We work closely with a handful of artists and composers to develop projects and new ideas over the course of many performances. This has included collaborations with artists such as Happy Valley Band, String Noise, Ghost Ensemble, Séverine Ballon, RAGE THORMBONES & Zachary James Watkins, Ma’ayan Tsadka, Laura Steenberge & K.C.M. Walker, and frequently includes those of us running Indexical.

We have presented concerts and performances since 2011, beginning at Willow Place Auditorium in Brooklyn, and now in various locations in Santa Cruz. These performances often become large-scale studio projects, released on our in-house record label. In addition to studio recordings, we release many live recordings, videos, and live-in-studio performances through our subscription series The Essential Indexical.

In all releases and projects, we are interested in fitting the format of the project to the work, whether that entails a concert, lecture, publication, or custom bug-killing machine.
