Music Composition, Department of Music, Rutgers University
Steven Holochwost will conduct a study addressing the role of
cultural policy in the field of new music composition. The project
will attempt to assess whether or not there is a need for increased
policy involvement to aid in the dissemination of contemporary
classical music, in order to maintain the vitality of the discipline.
Towards this end, the health and prevalence of major outlets for
new music will be evaluated, including concert performance, recordings,
radio broadcast, and publishing. In addition, alternative, grassroots
institutions in these areas will be profiled as possible exemplars
for future policy initiatives.
