Album Remarks & Appraisals:

"In 1983, the New York State Council on the Arts established fellowships in 16 arts disciplines, including ones for Music Composition and Sound administered by the New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA). To celebrate 25 years of fellows (there have been more than 200 to date), this five-CD collection features 52 of them, mostly performing new compositions heard here for the first time. The pieces show the diverse range of contemporary musical expressions the program supports - experimental jam bands, works for newly invented instruments, electronic manipulations, jazz and world forms, music for dance and film - enough to challenge and reward anyone with an appetite for well-crafted sonic adventures. Notable names like Meredith Monk, Robert Dick, Rudresh Mahanthappa, Fred Ho and Paul Motian stand out among the many forward-thinking, New York-based composers and performers featured in this stunning document of a historic culture." -DownBeat
