Born, 1935), he studied french horn and piano (49-52) and
theory/composition (U of Mich) (52-53); co-founded the Ann Arbor Studio
(58-66), co-directed the ONCE Festival (60-68); was an acoustics research
assistant (62-63). Published in SOURCE.

He was at one time an "emerging" artist, but, IMV, rather clearly was not
so by the age of 35.

Maybe an emerging artist is someone who thinks they are, and a large
number of their peers agree?
