Comprising musical performance, ritual activity and print media, IAO Core has been a wellspring of countercultural activity in the San Francisco Bay area for fifteen years.
In elaborate performances with as many as sixteen players onstage, IAO Core has performed with a rich variety of underground musicians: on the Over the Edge radio show with Don Joyce of Negativland, onstage with local heroes/outcasts such as Caroliner and Monte Cazazza, as well as Crash Worship, Vidna Obmana, Gong's Daevid Allen and Japanese noise unit C.C.C.C. In addition the group has collaborated with some of SF's most extreme and adventuresome individuals, from electroacoustic instrument inventor Thom Nunn to blood-drinking performance/spoken word artist Danielle Willis.
