Charles Amirkhanian engages former KPFA music programers and current music critics, John Rockwell and Charles Shere, in a fascinating discussion about the state of New Music and the New Music America Festivals. The difference between academic avant-garde music concerts and the more adventurous programing of multi-media works, new wave rock bands, and sound installations featured at the New Music America Festivals, is fully explored. The appropriate size of such events and the correct role of the music critic in promoting or reviewing such concerts is also touched upon in this, at time contentious, but always cordial, discussion.
