Artists' Group Meeting, September 2001

Meeting Report

The September meeting of the Artists' Group was held on September 9, 2001 from 3:00-5:00 at the home of Brad Fischer and Katherine Setar. Those attending were: Tom Bickley, Brad Fischer, Marianne McDonald, Lisa Mischke, Katherine Setar, and Toyoji Tomita

The meeting consisted of pot luck snacks, and discussions regarding the 2002 Pauline Oliveros Retrospective.

The meeting consisted of the following:

  1. Katherine Setar gave a presentation describing the contents of the Pauline Oliveros Archive at the University of California, San Diego. The archive contains of all of Pauline's works from the 1950s through the early 1980s. Katherine has examined all of the archive's written contents as a part of her doctoral research, and exhibited her collection of printed scores, manuscript copies, and notes which describe Pauline's many compositions. The notes which describe the contents of the U.C.S.D. Archive have been just uploaded for viewing by Toyoji Tomita at yahoo:
  2. Toyoji Tomita briefly discussed his initial efforts to find funding for the Oliveros Retrospective. Similarly, Tom Bickley discussed the initial programming meeting held on Friday night, September 7, 2001. The plans are, as yet, still somewhat tentative.
  3. Those members of the Artists' Group in attendance decided to continue holding monthly meetings, despite people's busy holiday schedules in November and December. In light of the huge amount of work necessary to put on this retrospective, we all believed that consistent meetings would help insure the success of this project.
