descriptions, reviews, &c.
"Tenney's percussion pieces could be regarded as a veritable collection of topoi of the American experimental tradition. Central ideas of the U.S. avant-garde-the reduction of complexity, the use of space and room resonance as musical parameters, re-definition of the use of technology, re-integration of the roles of composer and performer, indeterminacy and non-subjectivity, liberation of silence from its traditional subordinate role in music-are adapted and transformed in concise and creative ways."-Peter Niklas Wilson
