“Music with Roots in the Aether is a series of interviews with seven composers who seemed to me when I conceived the opera-for-television piece–and who still seem to me twenty-five years later–to be among the most important, influential and active members of the so-called avant-garde movement in American music, a movement that had its origins in the work of and in the stories about composers who started hearing things in a new way at least fifty years ago.” (from the Foreword)
With interviews with and essays about David Behrman, Philip Glass, Alvin Lucier, Gordon Mumma, Pauline Oliveros, Roger Reynolds, Terry Riley and Robert Ashley.
