this volume features pierre boulez's only concréte piece, an rather amazing gershon kingsley computer-funk piece, the only recorded realization of grainger's 'free music', an interlude to a film about glass blowing by tom dissevelt, and and joan labarbara's score to doris chase's experimental dance video.
