Show Summary Details


This chapter presents Reich's thoughts about James Tenney. Tenney was a fine composer, pianist, and conductor who was championing the works of (among others) Ives, Varèse, Cage, Feldman, Brown, and Wolff. He was also involved in very high-powered computer music research at Bell Laboratories. Jim seemed to be a natural teacher. He always got to the point of things whether he was at rehearsal or explaining about computers.
