Since 2009, Non-Event has collaborated closely with the Goethe-Institut Boston to produce an electronic and experimental music concert series, featuring works by German sound artists, improvisers, and composers.
Non-Event also organizes a monthly series of informal experimental coffee house concerts featuring local musicians and sound artists. These are held at Café Fixe in Brookline and are made possible in part by the support of a grant from the Brookline Commission for the Arts.
