From the library at the Getty Research Institute, The Art of David Tudor is a great example of effective presentation of highlights from rich library and archival collections on the Web. The site complements a symposium held at the Getty Research Institute in 2001: "The Art of David Tudor: Indeterminacy and Performance in Postwar Culture". Born in 1926, Tudor became an internationally known pianist in the traditional arena, but gravitated to more experimental music in the 1940s, and composed and performed experimental electronic music in the 1960s and 1970s. Tudor's major works were produced collaboratively, with colleagues including John Cage and Merce Cunningham, Jackie Matisse, Bill Viola, and Karlheinz Stockhausen. The site includes a section on Tudor's collaborators; biographies and links to additional resources on over 35 artists who worked or performed with Tudor. Other main sections are: Audio and Video, where visitors can watch and listen to excerpts of Tudor's works (most of the full versions are held by the Getty Research Institute); Image Library, featuring pictures of Tudor, as well as documents such as scores and letters; a section on the symposium, and a biography of Tudor.
