[Liner notes]
"The Acoustic Research Contemporary Music Project
Acoustic Research, Inc. provided a group of composers with the funds and technological support necessary to make recordings and produce broadcasts of music composed by their colleagues and themselves. The series, made available to the public in 1970, consisted of fourteen radio broadcasts and six recordings. The aim of the project was to provide composers with direct access to as large an audience as modern technology could offer, and to give listeners an opportunity to hear contemporary music, chosen by composers on the basis of musical criteria alone.
Advisers on the project were Milton Babbitt, Elliot Carter, Aaron Copland, Gunther Schuller, and Roger Sessions; the program committee consisted of David Epstein, Earl Kim, Donald Martino, and Seymour Shifrin. David Epstein was Director of the project; Leo Treitler was in charge of production and annotation; technical supervision was provided by Roy F. Allison and Robert Berkovitz."
