Charles Amirkhanian is joined in the KPFA studio by Han Reiziger to discuss their impressions of the, then recently concluded, New Music America ‘81 Festival, that was held in San Francisco during the first two weeks of June in 1981. Reiziger, a radio programmer for Dutch Radio’s VPRO, and a guest host on KPFA during the mid-1970s, begins by describing some of the more recent projects he has been a part of in the Netherlands, including a series of events popularizing the music of Georg Benda. However the majority of the program is dedicated to a discussion of Reiziger’s favorite works featured during the New Music America Festival, including compositions by Julius Eastman, Robert Erickson, and Laurie Anderson, among others. Brief excerpts from a few of these performances are also heard.
