Notes
Content: Title, date, location, and performers provided by cataloger based on handwritten note on original DAT container, audition, and performance program.
Content: Handwritten note on original DAT container: "City Center '95 ; Minevent - Kosugi, Steuert [Stuart] Dempster, John Adams, D[']arcy Grey [Gray] ; Sounddance - Tudor".
Content: Contains the music for one of Merce Cunningham's MinEvents, and, Sounddance (1975).
Content: Based on audition and the other performances in this series, it is likely that Stuart Dempster plays the trombone and didjeridu in this recording although Dempster is not listed as a musician for the MinEvents in the performance programs. John Driscoll is credited as a musician for the MinEvents in the performance programs, but it is unclear if Driscoll plays on this recording based on the note on the original DAT container.
