The New York New Music Ensemble, established 1976, has made available its extensive archive, including communications with composers, presenters, recording companies, and funders both public and private. There is also a voluminous library of scores, including many commissions. In opening the archive to scholars, it is NYNME's hope to stimulate research, not only into the organization's own activities, but into broader questions about New York's late 20th-century new music scene, the history of contemporary performance practices, patterns of commission and recording, and audience reception.
Contact: Jayn Rosenfeld, former executive director and flutist with the ensemble.
