Zeitgeist has developed several audience-building programs designed to create
connections with communities, diversify audiences and encourage individuals to
participate in the creative process of music-making. These programs include the
Eric Stokes Song Contest (amateur composition contest), Making Music Outside the
Lines (new music performance activities for high school students) and Departure
Point (a long-term composition project with students from St. Paul Conservatory
for the Performing Arts). In addition, Zeitgeist operates Studio Z, a performance
space where audiences, composers and new music performers can come together
to experience new music.
Zeitgeist has released several recordings, including She is a Phantom (music of
Harold Budd), A Decade (music of Frederic Rzewski), Intuitive Leaps (music of
Terry Riley), Eric Stokes (music of Eric Stokes), If Tigers Were Clouds (featuring
music of experimental women composers), Shape Shifting (music by Scott Miller,
