The last issue of 2009 features two reviews, as well as Member News and updated information on the 2010 SEAMUS Conference.
The San Francisco Tape Music Center was a hotbed of activity in the 1960s, and a book covering it’s activities is long overdue. Former SEAMUS Newsletter Editor Kurt Stallmann reviews the 2008 book that was edited by David Bernstein.
Also in this issue, Jorge Variego has produced a review of the 2009 edition of the Sonoimagenes festival. The festival, which has been in existence since 2000, presents electroacoustic music predominantly from South and Central America. This article is particularly informative as many of these composers are not well known in the United States.
