"Lou Harrison: American Musical Maverick" by Bill Alves (HMC Professor of Music) and Brett Campbell (Portland State University English faculty)
In this biography, authors Bill Alves and Brett Campbell trace Harrison's life and career from the diverse streets of San Francisco, where he studied with music experimentalist Henry Cowell and Austrian composer Arnold Schoenberg, and where he discovered his love for all things non-traditional (Beat poetry, parties and men); to the competitive performance industry in New York, where he subsequently launched his career as a composer, conducted Charles Ives's Third Symphony at Carnegie Hall (winning the elder composer a Pulitzer Prize), and experienced a devastating mental breakdown; to the experimental arts institution of Black Mountain College where he was involved in the first "happenings" with Cage, Cunningham and others; and finally, back to California where he would become a strong voice in human rights and environmental campaigns and compose some of the most eclectic pieces of his career.
Presented by the HMC Department of Humanities, Social Sciences, and the Arts
