Founded in 1998, MEDIATE Art Group produces contemporary sound, installation and performance works in the San Francisco Bay Area. Its primary activity is the production of the acclaimed Soundwave Biennial, a thoughtfully curated two-year program that culminates in a summer-long sound and arts festival.

Each season, Soundwave investigates a new idea through sound, invites diverse artists to thoroughly explore the season’s theme, and partners with community organizations and non-profits to present the works to diverse audiences. It is the only program that brings together creators from across the sonic spectrum (sound art, media art, experimental, classical, voice, noise, acoustic ecology, popular music). This year's theme, Infrastructure, is a performance series highlighting the organizational and social aspects of a variety of Bay Area and global networks. The series is meant to provoke ideas and conversation around isolation amid interconnectivity; environmental degradation and mass consumption of electronics; the politics of energy infrastructures, fossil fuels and renewables; the movement of goods and services across roads, bridges, railways, channels and ports; the often invisible protocols that affect our daily lives.
