Preserving Lejaren A. Hiller's Flowcharts: A Case Study

Summary of exhibition held in the University at Buffalo Music Library, Jan. 16 - Sept. 15, 2007. This exhibit was the result of a months-long project undertaken by Judy Jungels, a staff member in the University Libraries Center for Book Preservation, to preserve the computer flowcharts created by composer Lejaren Hiller. The exhibit demonstrates why the preservation was required and what it entailed. Additional text by Professor Cort Lippe, current director of the Lejaren Hiller Computer Music Studios, provides historical background on the use of flowcharts in the creation of computer music and Hiller's role as musical innovator in the realm of electronic music.
