WHO IS THINGAMAJIGS? Thingamajigs is a genre-crossing arts organization that promotes music and other art forms created with made and found materials or alternate tuning systems. Our mission is to develop and nurture the exploration of alternate materials and methods of creating sound, and promote collaborative efforts between artists and local communities. With open workshops, performances and a robust education program, we welcome audiences/participants of all ages and backgrounds to join in the tradition of Bay Area visionaries such as Harry Partch, Lou Harrison, and John Cage.

Pacific Exchange 2019 continues to bring composers and performers from diverse areas of the Pacific Rim together to exchange ideas and create music on a shared concert stage. Co-presented with the San Francisco International Arts Festival, this year’s performances will feature traditional Korean works by Yun Kyong Jin and Soo Yeon Lyn, as well as the world premiere of “Self_Less” , a new musical work by Edward Schocker and The Crossing Ensemble that examines the question of ‘what is the self?’ from a cultural, spiritual, and social perspective.
