Arc Light Editions is proud to present the debut album by American electronic musician and tape musician Ruth Anderson (1928-2019). Ruth Anderson was born in Montana in 1928, trained as a flutist, and studied composition with Darius Milhaud and Nadia Boulanger in Paris, France. She also worked as an orchestral composer for NBC-TV and performed on the stage of the Lincoln Center production, where the Juilliard School is also located. As an undergraduate at the Hunter School of the City University of New York, she founded the school's electronic music studio. The studio is believed to be one of the first electronic music studios founded and directed by a woman in the United States. She was also a dedicated teacher with a deep interest in psychoacoustics and Zen Buddhism, and continued to work diligently until her retirement from Hunter School in 1989. This work compiles a number of rare sound sources, including microtonal electronic works, drones, meditative feature films, and playful plunderphonic collages made between 1968 and 1997. Mastered by Nan and Giuseppe Ielasi.
