Other Music was a San Francisco Bay Area–based new music ensemble that existed from 1975 to approximately 1986 (the end date is approximate because it was never officially decided to end the group; it just gradually wound down, as such things are wont to do). Other Music emerged from a class taught by composer John Dinwiddie, then an adjunct faculty member at New College of California, in Sausalito, in the spring of 1975. Class members Henry S. Rosenthal, Dale S. Soules,and David B. Doty started performing as Other Music;
Carola B. Anderson attended an early concert and later joined the group. Much of their music was performed on instruments they constructed themselves, as well as found objects, and focused largely on Just Intonation using 14 notes to the octave. Other members included (at various times) Kathy Sheehy, Andrew Fischer, Brenda Tiersma, Jacqueline Summerfield, James Stadig, and Robert Lauriston. They released two albums: Prime Numbers (1980) and Incidents out of Context (1983).
