During the ’70- and ’80s, the Woodstock-based Creative Music Studio was considered the premier study center for contemporary creative music. Founded in 1971 by Karl Berger, Ingrid Sertso and Ornette Coleman, CMS brought together leading innovators in the jazz and world music communities. Unprecedented in its range and diversity, CMS was an acknowledged phenomenon in the international music world. The CMS Archive of 400 recordings is presently being digitized and re-mastered in collaboration with Columbia University. And Karl Berger and Friends continue to present residencies world-wide, notably in Italy, Germany, Istanbul and Brazil. See: www.creativemusicstudio.org
