The 23five Live Archive

Since 1993, 23five has hosted numerous performances and installations from a wide range of sound artists. The following selection of MP3s represents a growing library of audio documentation from these events, which mostly take part in and around the San Francisco Bay Area. While we are making these MP3s free to the public with the blessings of the artists in question, we hope that you will consider donating to help offset the costs of the server space and help insure that 23five can continue to offer adventurous programming for years to come.
