7 See my Making Music in Los Angeles: Transforming the Popular (Berkeley: University of California Press, 2007), chapters 13–14, pp. 187–214. The prime example here: Henry Cowell gave a little-known series of performances illustrating his use of the “string piano” in Los Angeles, most likely at Krotona (the theosophical colony) in 1922. He found the climate (and the patrons) welcoming enough that he chose Los Angeles for the inception of his New Music Society concerts in 1925, a decision that has seemed puzzling without the evidence of those earlier concerts. (I now wish I had asked Rudhyar about the 1922 series when I corresponded with him. I was unaware of them at that time.)
