Description - The San Francisco Tape Music Center by David W. Bernstein

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