The Mills College Years

This chapter comprises the years following the demise of the ONCE festivals as Ashley moves to Oakland, California and takes up a professorship at Mills College, from where he would teach electronic music. As best he could in new circumstances, he continued the kind of activities he had directed in Ann Arbor. However, despite this new and promising life on the West Coast, it was a depressing period for Ashley. His composing had slowed to a standstill, and he had no plans to continue. With the demise of ONCE, nobody, he felt, was interested in his kind of music, and he did not want to just write music that would sit in a file cabinet. This creative fallow would last from 1968 to 1972, when Ashley's muse would catch a second wind and jumpstart another series of compositions, which this chapter records in more detail.
