This class will focus on the American avant-garde tradition that flourished in the middle of the 20th century but whose roots arguably date back more than 200 years and whose influence still resonates today. Along with their European counterparts, composers whose work will be discussed include Charles Ives, Henry Cowell, Terry Riley, Harry Partch, Conclon Nancarrow, George Antheil, Max Neuhaus, Alvin Lucier, Robert Ashley, Christian Wolff, Pauline Oliveros, Steve Reich, David Tudor, Earle Brown, Morton Feldman, Philip Glass, and La Monte Young. The centerpiece of the discussion, however, will be the innovative music and ideas of the American composer-philosopher John Cage.
