Many Many Women (1975-78) marks the culmination of a series of extended-duration works, composed by Kotik from 1971-’83, which may be performed in whole or in part and have no distinct beginning or ending. Many of these pieces included parts for voices, at first with texts by Gertrude Stein and later by R. Buckminster Fuller.
