Three composers Alvin Curran, Frederic Rzewski, and Richard Teitelbaum collaborated together back in the mid-60's, when in Rome. Working until the name Musica Elettronica Viva, this was one of the first ensembles to take electronic music out of the studio and attempt to perform it live. On this edition of New Sounds, we'll hear music from all three composers.
