This concluding chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the acceptance of American experimental music in West Germany. It explains that in the forty-five years after the war, American experimental composers received extensive support in West Germany that nourished their careers as professional composers. It summarizes the complex reasons for American experimental music's prominent position in West German new music circles, intellectual circles that historically have remained skeptical regarding the value of American culture.
