Day 312 — Goodbye to Dieter Kaufmann
09-Jun-1972 (Freitag–Fri.)


Last day of electronic music. Said goodbye to Dieter Kaurmann. Will write. I’m sure I’ll be seeing him again.

Still have not finished my copies for the festival. Hopefully…


Last day of electronic music class. Today, was the last day of our electronic music class. We said our goodbyes to Prof. Kaufmann, Ing. Gottwald, and each other. What a wonderful year it was in this class—my personal experience with the entire Fantasy on Broken Glass project, the friendship of the class students, and being under the tutelage of a wonderful teacher and composer, Dieter Kaufmann.

No, I was never able to get back to Vienna in all these years and thus haven’t seen Prof. Kaufmann. I did write him and send him a revised version of
Fantasy, a couple of years later.
