Center for Contemporary Music

For almost forty years, the Center for Contemporary Music has been at the forefront of developments emphasizing experimental methods in contemporary music and its allied arts and sciences. In 1966, the San Francisco Tape Music Center (founded in 1961) moved to Mills College and became the Mills Tape Music Center, and later, the Center for Contemporary Music (CCM). Since its inception, this organization has achieved a strong international reputation as one of the leading centers for innovation in music.

CCM maintains a variety of electronic equipment, instruments and studios, provides instruction and technical assistance, and archives audio recordings. These are available for use by qualified graduate and undergraduate students, faculty and staff. The Center also performs a wide variety of community services in the arts, including public concerts and lecture series, informational and technical assistance, and artist residencies.

In addition, the Center is one of few music facilities in the United States open to the public on a non-profit, non-commercial basis, serving independent composers, artists, and musical groups. This service and other public programs keep CCM functioning as an important resource center for the Bay Area's community of composers and artists and contributes to CCM's atmosphere of exciting collaboration and information exchange among students, faculty, staff and outside professionals.
