The Rockefeller Years, 1964 to Spring 1968
This chapter describes the series of coincidences that led to the creation of the Center of the Creative and Performing Arts; assembling the first group of Creative Associates by Lukas Foss and the university's music department chairman Allen Sapp and their commitment to having an international mix of people in the group; the first Buffalo Festival of the Arts Today which, covered by Life and Time magazines, brings renown to the city of Buffalo as a haven for adventurous avant-garde music and art. Also discussed is the turmoil of the early days of the group's residency at the university, prompting manifestos and demands for improved artistic and administrative procedures; the residencies of Italian composer Sylvano Bussotti and composer-pianists David Tudor and Cornelius Cardew; the recording of Terry Riley's In C for Columbia Records; and the frequent visits of composer John Cage.
