The majority of the activities at electro-music 2008(TM) will be contributions of members of electro-music.com, an international community of composers and musicians that share a passion for electro-music.

electro-music.com is a place where artists and musicians meet, collaborate, support each other, sell CDs, and nurture their audiences. The community exists to create its own critical mass; to enable its members to develop music on their own terms. Electro-music is new music; still undefined; happening all over our planet. Electro-music is the natural result of techno/social trends: the availability of low-cost powerful electronic music technology, and the communication revolution enabled by the internet. Electro-music is not defined by a particular style or sound, but by its primary motivation being the joy of creation, and the love of electronic sounds. It can be slow and spacey, or fast and rhythmic; it crosses many genres.

A special forum on electro-music.com has been set up to plan this event. Here our members can share what they would like to contribute, and make suggestions.

The Renaissance Center is an ideal facility for a multi-day event like this. We'll have a nice theater and additional rooms for our activities during the three days. Located in the Northeast corner of Tennessee, Kingsport is in a beautiful scenic area and close to several national parks. There are also historic sites nearby.

electro-music 2008 will build on the success of the previous electro-music events in 2005, 2006 and 2007. The participants at those events felt it was a ground-breaking and inspirational experience. Learn about the past events here. Check the photos and read the testimonials. Many of the artists who were at the earlier events are returning this year, and there are also some interesting and talented newcomers.

Keep a close eye out for the latest news about electro-music 2008 here. Start doing whatever it is you've gotta do now to get yourself to electro-music 2008 in August. This is going to be something you don't want to miss.  If you have questions or suggestions you may contact the organizers at event@electro-music.com
