Additional labor-saving steps were taken in New York, where Luening and Ussachevsky were receiving media exposure, followed by more prestigious performances and, finally, material grants. In December 1952 the pair were invited to appear on the “Today” show, then hosted by the announcer and commentator Dave Garroway. In April 1953, their pieces (including Incantation, their first joint composition) were included in a festival of musique concrète presented by Radiodiffusion française in Paris. Next, they received a commission from the Louisville Orchestra, funded by the Rockefeller Foundation, for a concerted piece for tape recorder and orchestra. The result, Rhapsodic Variations, was first performed in Louisville on 20 March 1954 and recorded the next year.
