re-discovered this passage in my Source book (which i adore, if you’re into the mid century avant-garde scene) today. Source magazine, in the 1960s ffs, were not only sensitive to why women had a lack of presence in the field, but more proactive in getting female composers into the public consciousness than many publications were decades subsequent.

this is a conglomerate of people i greatly admire & work- music- theory- the sum of every detail that made up each composers’ viewpoint- that holds much significance to me. you grow numb to learning the ‘academic’ art circles you love were historically rife w/ misogyny, so seeing contrary for once, is neat.
