Women composers explore the question of why so many women composers have emerged of late, and talk about women composers from both historical and social points of view. The composers interviewed are Carla Bley, jazz composer; Lucia Dlugoszewski, classical composer; Vivian Fine, composition teacher at Bennington College; Laura Greenberg, classical composer; Pauline Oliveros, who talks by phone from the New Music Center at La Jolla, CA; and Ann Sternberg, pop composer. 21:35--their pieces of composition are played including: "Deep Down", "No Rest For Me" (Sternberg); "Density" (Dlugoszewski), "Sound Patterns" (Oliveros); "Duet for Harp Synthesizer" (Greenberg); "Peon" (Fine); "This Is Here" (from Bley's opera, "Escalator over the Hill). 65:00--comments continue. Produced by Judy Sherman.
