Four works by Gordon Mumma. The first and last works, “Vectors” and “Densities” are purely electronic tape pieces, very representative of the early, electronic music of Mumma. Also included is “Sinfonia” an electro-acoustic work scored for twelve instruments and tape, recorded on March 4, 1961 at that year’s ONCE Festival in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The ONCE Festival Chamber Ensemble is directed by Wayne Dunlap. This is followed by four selections from “Gestures II” a chance composition for two pianos, and recorded at the 1962 ONCE Festival, in February of that year, and featuring the composer, and fellow Festival organizer Robert Ashley on piano.
