Founded in New York in 1971, The Kitchen is internationally known as a leading center for video, music, dance, performance, new media and literature. Orange Mountain Music has begun the restoration of audio reels from performances at The Kitchen with the goal of producing a series of CDs entitled From The Kitchen Archives. New Music, New York 1979, the debut release in this series, is a two-disc set offering re-mastered recordings from the landmark concerts of 'New Music, New York: A Festival of Composers and their Music,' which took place in SoHo June 8-16, 1979. 25 years later, these recordings are an invaluable time-capsule -- a privileged view/listen into a historic event, initially heard by only a few hundred people. Beyond their historic value, they offer brilliant and exciting music by composers now considered masters of the genre, as well as remarkable performances by figures nearly forgotten. Composers featured include Steve Reich, Michael Nyman, Meredith Monk, Pauline Oliveros, Philip Glass, Jon Gibson, Garrett List, Gordon Mumma, George Lewis, Tom Johnson, Charlie Morrow, Barbara Benary, Phil Niblock, David Behrman, Joel Chadabe, Tony Conrad, Charlemagne Palestine.
