The first and most definitive examination of the SUNY Buffalo Creative Associates, Renée Levine Packer's This Life of Sounds provides a previously unseen glimpse at a formative time in American musical experimentalism. Led by Morton Feldman, and featuring Julius Eastman, among others, this ensemble transformed 1960s and '70s Buffalo into a hotbed of challenging and controversial musical activity. The Associates' compositions were periodically performed at a variety of venues in Buffalo, New York City, and other communities during their infamous Evenings for New Music, and their forays into international and national touring certainly altered the history of modern music the world over.
