The Archive of Recorded Sound at Stanford University is delighted to announce that the Richard Maxfield Collection (ARS.0074) can now be listened to online, via the collection's finding aid on the Online Archive of California http://www.oac.cdlib.org/findaid/ark:/13030/kt6q2nf5jm/.
This collection features nine distinct works by the pioneering American electronic music composer Richard Maxfield, composed between 1959-1964, four of which are believed to be previously unpublished (Dromenom, Electronic Symphony, Suite from Peripateia, and Wind). Additionally, as Maxfield frequently produced unique edits of his work for each performance, many of the open tape reels that form this collection include alternative edits to those previously published, such as the tapes for Amazing Grace which feature three different versions of the work.
You can read more about Maxfield and this collection on the Stanford Libraries Blog - http://library.stanford.edu/blogs/stanford-libraries-blog/2014/07/richard-maxfield-collection-now-streaming-online.
