Pauline's work and advanced musical concepts were well
known and appreciated in the SF Bay Area in the late 'fifties
and increasingly in the 'sixties. Her prose piece/poem "Some Sound
Observations" was first published in Source in Jan., 1968. She was
then and remains a great influence on my own work. Cage appreciated
her importance as well and collaborated with her in many, many
projects and performances. She continues to make important contributions
to the welfare of the new music and avant garde community of artists
and human beings.
