Biographical Note

Lejaren Hiller was born on February 23, 1924, in New York City. He received his B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. in chemistry from Princeton University, where he also studied music theory and composition with Milton Babbitt and Roger Sessions. In 1958, Hiller received his M. Mus. from the University of Illinois where he founded the Experimental Music Studio.

In 1957, Hiller collaborated with Leonard Isaacson on the Illiac Suite, the first significant use of a computer in composition. The Illiac Suite (String Quartet No. 4) was so named for the Illiac computer on which the calculations for the score parameters were made. Hiller was able to tap the power of the Illiac for the generation and selection of large quantities of random values in a fundamental type of stochastic modeling known as "the Monte Carlo Method."

Lejaren Hiller's importance to the field of computer music cannot be over-emphasized. His work on the use of computers for the generation of musical parameters such as pitch, rhythm, duration, etc. in pieces of music using traditional instruments, opened a door to new methods of music material generation and simultaneously to the computer-assisted analysis of the process of music composition.


Scope and Content Note

The collection contains Lejaren Hiller's personal collections of reel to reel tapes pertaining to his compositional output. It includes recordings of live performances of works as well as recordings of some of the electronic source materials used in other compositions.

Seventy-two of Hiller's compositions, out of an approximate total of eighty works, are included in the collection. Almost all of the recorded performances in the collection took place under Hiller's direction, or in his presence. They represent a historical record of his performance preferences and possibly contain critical information about performance practices of the period. The tapes for Hiller's electronic music compositions are unique to this collection. Multiple tapes exist for many of the compositions that combine electronic and acoustic sound sources. One tape may contain the electronic cues for a work and another tape an entire performance of the work. There are also multiple tapes of electronic sound sources for those of Hiller's compositions that are entirely electronic.


Arrangement

The collection is arranged in one series chiefly by the Hiller work number of the first work on the tape. Tapes with collections and Hiller's teaching materials are at the end of the collection.
