Regarding the Festival's impact, the Washington Post wrote that for Washington "where artistic life centers on museums and conservation" the Festival "could be seen as agradual shift in Washington where Antosca, the National Gallery, the Library of Congress, the Maison Francaise and others have been working hard to cultivate a contemporary music audience."

Composer Steve Antosca likes to keep thing unpredictable. As the former director of the venerable Verge Ensemble and now as the head of the National Gallery of Art's New Music Ensemble, he's brought wildly imaginative concerts - featuring everything from drum-playing robots to "echoic landscapes" created by motion-capturing devices - to Washington for more than a decade.
