From a program recorded in February of 1975, Charles Amirkhanian and Neil Rolnick interview the American composer, Hal Clark. Clark had just become the director of the new music studio at the Henie-Onstad Art Center in Norway. The studio was scheduled to open in May of 1975 and was to feature both electronic music, new music, ballet, and mixed media works.
