Memphis Concrète 2018 Coming June 22-24 In Memphis

The event will features a screening of “The Day The Earth Stood Still’ with live electronic score.

Memphis Concrète 2018 – an experimental electronic music festival held in Memphis, TN – is scheduled for June 22-24 at Crosstown Arts.

This year’s line-up includes Pharmakon, Circuit des Yeux, Alex Zhang Hungtai (of Dirty Beaches), Negative Gemini, IMAKEMADBEATS, Gel Set, Optic Sink (Natalie Hoffmann of NOTS) and others.

There will be three movie screenings with live electronic scores:

  • The Legend of Hell House (1973),
  • The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951), and
  • Woman in the Moon (1929).

The event started in 2017 out of a desire to foster a sense of community among experimental electronic musicians in Memphis and the area.

“Because it wasn’t happening,” according to festival mentor Robert Traxler. “Despite a very rich musical and music production history in Memphis, experimental and electronic music has been underrepresented”.
