Although any collaborative documentation is missing, and the identification of the compositions attributed to Dane Rudhyar is somewhat tentative, this does appear to be a concert of works by Rudhyar and Leo Ornstein as performed by pianist Michael Sellers. The concert took place in 1972, and is quite likely the KPFA sponsored concert held on March 5, 1972 at the Live Oak Theater in Berkeley California. In addition to what seems to be performances of Rudhyar’s “Granites,” “Pentagram No. 3,” and “Syntony,” two works by Leo Ornstein are also heard, “Poems of 1917” and “Wild Men's Dance” or “Danse Sauvage.”
