"Highlights Of Vortex'
LP, Folkways, 1959
"This record functions as the 1959 avant-garde score for Vortex,
a music/film production shown in the Morrison Planetarium in
San Francisco. One of the first multimedia events of its kind,
performance includes tracks that were constructed for playback
on a 38 speaker system by several different musicians/engineers.
According to the Center of Visual Music, the performance created a
"type of immersion environment [that] had never been created before".
