About this composition:

interferences was written immediately after plectros II, and it was meant to be a 'personal' project which lanza wanted to offer to the Contemporary Music Group based at Columbia University .

At the time, this group was directed by Charles Wuorinen and Harvey Sollberger. after the score and tape were delivered to them, there was never any answer to lanza's proposal.

interferences I was first performed during the IV Contemporary Music Festival in Mexico City, June 1967, with members of the OSN, conducted by Leopoldo La Rosa.
