Winham / Vercoe / Hoffmann / Gressel: Computer Works
Liner Notes   Cat. No. NWCRL393     Release Date: 2011-02-15
Marcus Thompson, viola;

This recording contains three "generations" of computer composers whose music uses three generations of computer music languages. The late Godfrey Winham is recognized as a prime force in the development of computer music — he was responsible for the FORTRAN version of Music IV, the original program developed in 1960 by Max Matthews of Bell Telephone Laboratories. Barry Vercoe was Winham's student at Princeton and there invented a more streamlined language, Music 360, now in wide use. The newer Music-11 system was developed by Vercoe at M.I.T. Richard Hoffmann and Joel Gressel did their work at M.I.T. and Princeton respectively, Hoffmann using Vercoe's Music-11 and Gressel using Music 360.


This title from the CRI LP back catalog has been carefully transferred from the original master tape, and is now available from New World Records as an on-demand CD (CD-R). It can also be downloaded in MP3/320, FLAC and/or WAV format(s).

We have preserved the original CRI LP catalog number for this title, preceded by the prefix NWCRL, to distinguish previously unavailable back catalog titles from those later reissued by CRI on compact disc.

***Please note that the newly-digitized CRI LP titles are priced at $12.99 (multiples excepted) and are not included in any of the special offers.***
