Biographical Note for Austin, Larry (1930 -) : According to the biography on his official web site, Austin studied with distinguished composers including Violet Archer (University of North Texas), French composer Darius Milhaud (Mills College), and American composer Andrew Imbrie (University of California-Berkeley), and "enjoyed extended associations in California in the 1960s with composers John Cage, Karlheinz Stockhausen, and David Tudor." Austin also co-founded the groundbreaking journal of new and experimental music, Source: Music of the Avant Garde, whose archives also reside in the Music Library. He was a member of the UNT College of Music faculty from 1978 until 1996, and served as director of the Center for Experimental Music and Intermedia from 1983 to 1991, and in 1995 and 1996. His works have been performed nationally and internationally by ensembles such as the New York Philharmonic and the National Philharmonic of Warsaw, and he has remained active as a composer well after his retirement from UNT.
