Three works of electronic music created at the Mills College Tape Center in the late 1960s. First up is “Zoomorph” by Canadian composer Martin Bartlett, followed by two pieces by San Francisco Bay Area based composer Alden Jenks. The Bay Area was a hotspot for American electronic music in the 1960s with the San Francisco Tape Center (later becoming the Mills Tape Center in 1966), attracting such talents as Pauline Oliveros, Morton Subotnick, and Ivan Tcherepnin, among others. Prior to the Tape Center, electronic music had been primarily produced in large European music studios, and by creating a forum in which young composers could easily experiment with new sounds and technologies, the Tape Center soon catapulted American electronic music into the limelight.
