From The Buffalo News:
June in Buffalo, the University at Buffalo’s annual festival of new music, captures the sound heard ’round the world. Scant days before the festival is set to start, participants are all over the globe. June in Buffalo has been a tradition at UB since 1975, when it was launched by Morton Feldman, the UB music professor who was an internationally renowned exponent of avant-garde music. Riding the wave of experimentation that also engulfed the BPO and the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, UB rolled out the red carpet for avant-garde composers from all over the world.
