The Mills College Music Department Graduate Program presents Signal Flow, an annual spring festival showcasing new student works in music and sound art. For over 75 years, Mills College has maintained an international reputation as a site for innovation and experimentalism in music. In its past and present, Mills counts among its students and faculty key innovators in areas as diverse as electronic, electro-acoustic and computer music, installation based sound art, improvised music, multi-media performance, instrument building, idiomatic instrumental composition and more. Notable graduates and faculty include Eliane Radigue, David Berhman, Robert Ashley, Luciano Berio, Anthony Braxton, Dave Brubeck, Lou Harrison, Annea Lockwood, Darius Milhaud, Pauline Oliveros, Steve Reich, Terry Riley, and Morton Subotnick. Many other notable composers have been celebrated and closely connected to the Mills Music Department such as David Tudor, Iannis Xenakis, Maryanne Amacher, and Laurie Anderson. Over the course of four days of programming, the public is invited to sample the latest offerings by student composers, performers, and artists who have taken up this legacy and who in turn are charting new territories of their own.
