Notable Guest Composers:


Ernst Krenek
Worked in BEAMS early on, wrote two tape pieces that are in the Brandeis Archive.

Alvin Lucier
While he was director of the studio at Brandeis, Lucier performed on and wrote music for several concerts. The landmark, I am Sitting in a Room was created building upon a technique discovered with a member of the Brandeis Physics Department. His Music for Solo Performer also grew out of this relationship. In 1967, Lucier invited John Cage to Brandeis for a concert. Cage composed his Rozart Mix for this concert and it was premiered at the Rose Art Museum along with the Lucier Music for Solo Performer
