UBC Reports | Vol. 48 | No. 7 | May 2, 2002

Time Piece

30 years ago

In an April 1972 UBC Reports article featuring the new electronic music studio at the School of Music, the late Music Prof. Cortland Hultberg explained why he didn't think electronic music would be branded a gimmick and gradually disappear into limbo as a curiosity.

Hultberg pointed out that in every age composers have made significant breakthroughs in musical thought that were not understood at the time. "With so many musical styles in existence, it's difficult to think of a new musical form as an extension of something that has developed from previous musical thought," said Hultberg. "As a result, it's not always easy to see where an electronic composition came from."
