New York-based virtuoso Robert Dick will bring his array of flutes, from the piccolo to the giant F bass for his first San Francisco solo concert in over a decade. Known worldwide for his rampantly inventive approach and mastery of extended techniques, Robert’s performances have been compared to the experience of hearing a full orchestra. When we started to open our ears and minds in the 60s, Robert was there. It's light years later, and he’s continuously accelerated throughout.
Since its start in 2006, NEXMAP has opened minds and produced profound and intimate artistic experiences. With the help of our donors, we have:
- Showcased over 55 internationally renowned artists from the Bay Area, Mexico, France, Japan, Switzerland and Canada at 39 different events,
- Educated hundreds of under-served youth in its Inside/Out outreach initiative, by offering free admission and post-event conversations with musicians and composers, and providing unique hands-on workshops to demystify new technologies.
- Nurtured young professionals through our state-wide Recording Award for California Composers, and our Media Workshops that develop and support the next generation of creators.

About a month ago, I realized I just couldn’t deal with loose batteries in my notebook anymore. I couldn’t figure out a non-fiddly way to securely store them—if they were secure, then it took forever to fish them out and if not, well, I’d lose them. It made me think of Jie’s wonderful circuit sketchbook prototype that uses an auxiliary cell phone battery embedded in the back cover and can be charged via USB. How might a beginner create a simpler version of her circuit sketchbook?
