3.3: Music Compositions , 1953-1970s
2.4 Linear feet
Box 3-5, 44, OV 51

Musical compositions arranged here were primarily written by Cosmos, although there are a few scattered unidentified printed and hand written sheet music compositions written by others. The compositions are found in script, notebooks, and 36 sound tape reels.
Cosmos's music compositions are both independent works and scores produced for dance and theater performances, including many Off-Off Broadway productions. Descriptive labeling on the 36 sound recordings match the names of productions for which Cosmos wrote scores (users, please note that content has not been verified.) Recordings of plays include both musical scores and dialogue.
Additional unidentified sound recordings of Cosmos's music compositions may be found in Sound Recordings and Born Digital Material. Scripts for many productions are found in Writings by Others. Music compositions written as a component of an art project such as Vox Humana #3 and Queen of the Night Aria are arranged with the files for the art project.
