Open source is the simple idea that we share our creative work, and allow others to build upon it freely. We’ve built our whole music festival around this powerful concept.
Explore the explosive phenomenon of open source, through new compositions, collaboration and sharing. The vision of Founder and Artistic Director, pianist Joel Fan, bridges the worlds of contemporary and electronic music through performances and new works.

"The open source movement is changing the world, and affects every part of our lives. As a pianist, I’ve always been fascinated by the way music is created - how musical ideas are shared and new musical trends emerge. The Internet and the open source movement have radically changed the way we communicate, collaborate, and power much of our creativity today." Joel Fan, Artistic Director.
