Amirkhanian also presents brief interviews with Margaret Jory, Director of the American Music Center, the United States’ official information center and repository for contemporary classical music; and with Phill Niblock, composer and director of the Experimental Intermedia Foundation, and who was preparing to broadcast his, “Concerts for Composers,” a collection of live performances recorded in Niblock’s New York City loft.
