West Germany and the American Experimental Tradition
This study describes the history of foreign support afforded to American experimental music from 1945 to 1990, particularly West Germany. It explains that during the second half of the twentieth century, American composer-performers and West German cultural institutions contributed to an unprecedented international exchange of musical, aesthetic, and ideological viewpoints. It discusses changing attitudes about American music and contemporary composition during post-war and Cold War eras in West Germany.
