Center for Contemporary Music
Originally founded in 1961 as the San Francisco Tape Music Center, the Center for Contemporary Music (CCM) moved to Mills College in 1966. Since then a tradition of experiment music has taken root at Mills through the program's of composers such as Henry Cowell, John Cage, and Lou Harrison. Spark visits students at CCM as they explore the relationship between audience and performer.
In addition to traditional instruments, CCM maintains a variety of electronic equipment. They also offer studios, instruction and technical assistance as well as access to archives of audio recordings. The center serves as a resource to the community by holding public concerts and lectures, and is open to independent composers and musicians.
