IDEAMA (International Digital Electroacoustic Music Archive) was founded in 1990 to identify and preserve important and endangered compositions from the early years of electroacoustic music (works to circa 1970). The Stanford Center for Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA) was a co-collaborator on the project with the Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnolgie (ZKM) in Karlsruhe, Germany. CCRMA's involvement ended in 1996 and this collection came to ARS from CCRMA. A target collection of 570 works transferred to digital format was completed in 1997. Significant composers include John Cage, Edgard Varèse, Milton Babbitt, Charles Wuorinen, Steve Reich, Max Mathews, and Tōru Takemitsu. The IDEAMA collection consists of sound recordings on CD-R transferred from original master tapes, as well as a few master open reel tapes, DATs, and audiocassettes. The IDEAMA database is represented by 95 CD-ROMs and a set of 3 1/2" computer disks. One box contains documentation related to the ... Read More

Designed by Le Corbusier and his collaborator Iannis Xenakis, the Philips Pavilion was based on the idea of L.C. Kalff. There remains some question as to whether Xenakis or Le Corbusier should receive credit for the design of the building. The pavilion, which was ultimately declared unstable and destroyed, was designed as a shell structure composed entirely of prestressed concrete in the form of hyperbolic paraboloids individually cast to fit a complex framework of steel cables. The expressed object of the pavilion was to demonstrate the capabilities of modern technology in engineering, electro-acoustics, electronics, and automatic control techniques. The building was designed and equipped for an automatic performance of a spectacle in light and sound entitled "le poème electronique" which was conceived and written by Le Corbusier and included the music of Edgard Varèse. The collection includes correspondence, architectural drawings, photographs, color slides, painted glass plates ... Read More

The collection comprehensively documents David Tudor's participation in post-World War II experimental and avant-garde music and aspects of his personal life until his death in 1996. Scores by other composers, notably John Cage, Earle Brown, Morton Feldman, Christian Wolff, Sylvano Bussotti and Karlheinz Stockhausen, Tudor's realizations of their scores and his electronic compositional materials, form the most significant part of the collection. Extensive project files concern the scheduling and development of his piano concerts, electronic compositions and performances with the Merce Cunningham Dance Company. Electronic research files with equipment catalogs and notes show how Tudor taught himself complicated mathematics, equipment systems and circuitry in order to gain the requisite technical knowledge to compose his electronic work. Articles and reviews, a nearly complete set of Tudor's programs, more than 500 audio tapes, some videotapes, and photographs augment the documentation ... Read More

This film documents the conception, design, and opening of the Pepsi-Cola Pavilion at Expo '70, Osaka, Japan. It focuses on the model-making and installation of the mirror dome in the pavilion's interior space. E.A.T. Los Angeles and New York jointly organized and administered the large-scale international collaboration to design, build, and program the pavilion. The project was begun in October 1968 by four artists: Robert Breer, Forrest Myers, David Tudor and Robert Whitman. In all, 20 artists and 50 engineers and scientists contributed to the design of the pavilion, which opened in March 1970
