She was also the new music critic of the magazine “Musical America”, and she and Charles critique a concert by Philip Glass. Morton Subotnick is one of America's foremost electronic composers and has taught at CalArts and has also lectured extensively around the world. In this program he discusses his work "Ghost Pieces".
