San Francisco Tape Music Center by David W. Bernstein

Book Description

This book tells the story of the influential group of creative artists - Pauline Oliveros, Morton Subotnick, Ramon Sender, William Maginnis, and Tony Martin - who connected music to technology during a legendary era in California's cultural history. An integral part of the robust San Francisco 'scene', the San Francisco Tape Music Center developed new art forms through collaborations with Terry Riley, Steve Reich, David Tudor, Ken Dewey, Lee Breuer, the San Francisco Actor's Workshop, the San Francisco Mime Troupe, the Ann Halprin Dancers' Workshop, Canyon Cinema, and others. Told through vivid personal accounts, interviews, and retrospective essays by leading scholars and artists, this work, capturing the heady experimental milieu of the sixties, is the first comprehensive history of the San Francisco Tape Music Center.
