Certainly their input was significant, but they were primarily
interpreting KS's instructions.

Yes, the “http://www.the-notation-of-time.de/” site seems to be
unavailable at the moment.

http://home.swipnet.se/sonoloco7/stockhausen/31.html

includes a photograph of James with KS in 1985 - this page is about
'Unsichtbare Chöre' from "Donnerstag aus Licht", which is dedicated to
James.

I remember him in London in the early 70s - even lived in the same flat
for a while - at that stage he was just starting to do score copying
for Universal Edition - did KS take him with him when he left UE to set
up Stockhausen Verlag?

I have no idea what he is doing now.
