Camille Paglia of the Literature Division, and one of the few champions of Black Music, explained this phenomenon at the dedication of VAPA in 1976 in a speech of tribute to Bill Dixon: "There is no consolation here: those who seek assurance of the principle of benevolence pervading the universe will not find it in Bill Dixon's music. For the tradition of black music of which he is an advanced exponent, the reality of experience is suffering, pain, sacrifice, bitterness, anger. In the urgency of this black music at its most intense we find untamed energy, a violence of emotion and expression...the Black music that is practiced at Bennington is still unabsorbed by the bourgeoisie, for it is too raw, savage, unnerving; it possesses too much enriching estrangement, too much 'metaphysical uneasiness'" ItemFaculty Dance Concert (program)(1982-12-09) Roan, Barbara; Neville, Phoebe; Moore, Jack; Dixon, BillDances performed: Tagkanic (1982) choreographed by Barbara Roan; Autumn's Chanting (1982 premiere) choreographed by Jack Moore; Tea Dust at 5:43 PM (1978) choreographed by Jack Moore; Move (1966) choreographed by Phoebe Neville; Ocean (1986) choreographed by Barbara Roan; Nana Por Nada (1982) choreographed by Phoebe Neville; Beyond the Level.
