The selections include:

Messiaen – Oraison – 1937 – For Ondes Martenot
Cage – Imaginary Landscape – 1939 – For 2 phonographs
Schaeffer – Presentation du Concert de Bruits – 1948/06/20
Eimert, Herbert – Klangstudie I – 1952
Luening, Otto – Low Speed – 1952
Stockhausen, Karlheinz – Étude – 1952

And many others.

From NYTimes.com:

The evening’s honoree on Thursday at the Prospect Park Bandshell in Brooklyn was Ornette Coleman, and the first to pay respects was Sonny Rollins, wearing a stylish black raincoat. “I’m going to say something that Ornette already said to me: It’s all good,” Mr. Rollins declared. “Don’t worry about anything. We might not see it right now, but it’s all good.”
