Center for Contemporary Music

For more than 50 years, the Center for Contemporary Music (CCM) 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 moved to Mills College and became the Mills Tape Music Center, and later, the Center for Contemporary Music. Since its inception, this organization has achieved a strong international reputation as a leading center 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. CCM also performs a wide variety of community services in the arts, including public concerts and lecture series, informational and technical assistance, and artist residencies.

CCM functions 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.
