A complete run of this exciting independent periodical devoted entirely to the music of the 20th century avant garde, an outgrowth of the musical experimentalism in the late 1950s and early 60s at the University of California, Davis and Mills College in Oakland, California.
In an effort to expand the traditional definition of music and formal concert performance, Source documents many of the most important "new music" trends of the period including improvised and indeterminate music, minimalism, Fluxus, performance art, graphic scores, electronic music, performance art, concrete and sound poetry, intermedia, British Systems music, video/laser light shows, new electronic, video, and communications technologies, etc.
A landmark publication of great importance to the study of avant garde music of the mid-20th century, rarely found complete.
