It was a highly effective synthesis of abstract visuals—chiefly Arlo Acton's spherical sculptures of glittering titanium—and a soundtrack on which Terry Riley played hypnotically repetitive music on a soprano saxophone together with the feedback from two tape machines. The Dilexi Series , originally broadcast over KQED in San Francisco in 1969 and 1970, represents one of the first efforts to present works created by artists specifically for television....

In the summer of 1967, Mike McNamee, Glen McKay, and Scott Bartlett met for America's first electrovideographic jam. Bartlett's film loop and McKay's light show liquids were mixed through a video effects bank and the results were filmed by McNamee directly off the studio monitor with a rented kinescope camera. Bartlett edited a portion of this material and then built a soundtrack with the help of Tom DeWitt, who had also supplied many of the original film loops, and Manny Meyer, electronic...
