- Music After Five: Be Your Own Composer
- Program Description
As part of the New England Conservatory’s “Music After Five” series of evening concerts, Gunther Schuller, President of the Conservatory and a noted composer in his own right, has come up with a way to show you what its like to be your own composer. His method involves having people invent non-musical musical instruments (meaning anything that can produce sound, from an eggbeater to a balloon) and letting them “compose” within simple musical structures.
See January 1973 Prime Time program guide for story.
