Sorry to harass, but here's the definitive
date on the adoption of "digital musics"
by CCRMA: 1996.

Hi LArry,
sorry for the delay but I was in charge or the Summer Concert's
organization and I'm just reading last week's email right now. The name
"Digital Music under the Stars" has been used at least since 1996 for the
Summer Concert at the new venue (CCRMA's Courtyard). The concert moved
form Frost to The Knoll the year I arrived here and I have program notes
from that concert (I premiered my piece Metal Hurlant in it).
I hope this helps,
