Tribute to Pauline Oliveros
On September 13, 1970, a young composer named Pauline Oliveros (1932-2016) published in The New York Times an article entitled "And Don't Call Them 'Lady' Composers", Ms. Oliveros addressed an unasked yet (tellingly so) critical question: “Why have there been no ‘great’ women composers?” Her argument is guided by a questioning of critical, historiographic and technical discourse. Oliveros explained how the cult of innovation constructs figures of "greatness," and to what extent society promotes the virilization of these discursive models.
