Seastones is an album by American composer and musician Ned Lagin. In 1975 Lagin released the quadraphonic album of electronic music, a small part of the complete Seastones composition, on Round Records and United Artists Records. A new, two-CD album of Seastones was released on March 8, 2018. Lagin composed Seastones over the course of five years, it was recorded and mixed in just as many studios, mastered at a sixth. Much of the album consists of electronically processed traditional instruments and voice, a cadre of synthesizers; the early computers employed by Lagin included an Interdata 7/16 computer with a high speed arithmetic logic unit and magnetic core memory. The computer-controlled systems was designed and built for group live performance, with the performers instruments and voices routed through analog and digital synthesis and processing hardware. Seastones was one of the first commercially released recordings to feature the use of digital computers, Lagin was the first to perform on stage live with computers.

It was a early instance of multiple musicians' audio and control signals being interconnected before MIDI. The album was mixed in quadraphonic sound, released in quad-encoded stereo, featured guest performances by members of the Grateful Dead, including Jerry Garcia playing processed electric and pedal steel guitars, voice. David Crosby, members of the Jefferson Airplane Grace Slick, Spencer Dryden, David Freiberg appear on the album. Seastones was re-released in stereo on CD by Rykodisc in 1990; the CD version includes the original Round Records nine-section Seastones from February 1975, a unreleased, six-section version from December 1975. Both are partial versions of the full composition. Other unreleased Lagin Seastones-related compositions from the same period include L and Make a Cat Laugh. A new, two CD album of Seastones was released on March 8, 2018; this album, not a re-issue, presents most but not all of the composition as composed but never released or heard before. For this release, Seastones was re-mastered in stereo.

It includes most of the original 1970–1974 studio forms, those parts of Lagin's concurrent but unfinished composition L that are shared with Seastones, as well as some of the moment forms generated and incorporated into the composition from live performances that took place from 1973 to 1975. This two CD album contains 83 tracks and altogether is 111 minutes long. Ned Lagin performed versions of Seastones with Phil Lesh and with other members of the Grateful Dead at 23 Grateful Dead concerts between June 23, 1974 in Miami and October 20, 1974 in San Francisco; these took place between the first and second sets of the regular Grateful Dead shows. At some concerts, Seastones would form an entire set, at other shows it would segue into Grateful Dead songs such as "Playing in the Band" or "Dark Star". There were five live performances of Seastones that occurred outside of Grateful Dead shows: November 28, 1973, June 6, 1975, September 19, 1975, November 15, 1975, November 22, 1975. On Allmusic, Steven McDonald said, "In short, Seastones is electronic music of the best kind — a shifting sonic landscape out of which the strangest things may emerge."

Seattle movement

The Seattle movement started well before the celebrated struggles in the South in the 1950s and 1960s, they relied not just on African American activists but on Filipino Americans, Japanese Americans, Chinese Americans, Jews and Native Americans. They depended upon the support of some elements of the region's labor movement. From the 1910s through the 1970s, labor and civil rights were linked in complicated ways, with some unions and radical organizations providing critical support to struggles for racial justice, while others stood in the way. Seattle’s nineteenth century American population grew from a single person in 1858 to 406 women and men by 1900. Thee pioneers set forth the first black churches and civil rights organizations. For most of its history, Seattle was a segregated city, as committed to white supremacy as any location in America. People of color were excluded from most jobs, most neighborhoods and schools, many stores, restaurants and other commercial establishments hospitals.

As in other western states, the system of severe racial discrimination in Seattle targeted not just African Americans but Native Americans, Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders, people of Mexican ancestry, at times, Jews. Individuals of African American descent were treated worse than any other minority based on the fact that there was a smaller number compared. During World War II, thousands of black migrants from the South began arriving in Seattle to find work in munitions factories and shipyards during the Second Great Migration; as a result, the number of African Americans in the city grew from 3,700 in 1940 to 15,000 in 1950 and the NAACP Chapter in Seattle grew from 75 members to 1,500 in 1945. In 1956, Seattle's Civic Unity Committee created the Greater Seattle Housing Council, intending to encourage dialogue between proponents of open housing and the real estate industry. At this time, talks were fruitless; the following year, Washington State passed an Omnibus Civil Rights Act that provided that housing that had current federal or state government loans could not discriminate on the basis of race.

In 1959, this was challenged in King County Superior Court. The civil rights campaign in Seattle stepped up in October 1961, when the Seattle Employment Discrimination campaign urged selective buying with campaigns referred to as well a "shoe-in" and a "shop-in." In this same time frame, the NAACP requested an open housing ordinance. The Seattle City Council convened a public hearing on the matter on December 11, 1961, but declined to act, recommending instead that supporters of such a law organize a ballot initiative. Rather than focus on legislation, proponents of open housing pursued a different channel in the short run: in the summer of 1962, 24 organizations created the Fair Housing Listing Service to bring blacks who wished to purchase housing outside of Seattle's black Central District together with white homeowners willing to sell to minorities. By the beginning of 1965, FHLS negotiated 50 such sales. On December 17, 1962, the Mayor's Citizen's Advisory Committee on Minority Housing recommended that an open housing ordinance be submitted to city council, but the mayor and council delayed all action for a year.

That year would prove eventful. The Urban League and NAACP resigned from the Greater Seattle Housing Council because they believed had been ineffective in housing matters. A new committee was formed, the Central Area Civil Rights Committee. 400 people participated in a protest march July 1, 1963, 35 youth from the interracial Central District Youth Club staged Seattle's first sit-in, a nearly 24-hour occupation of the mayor's office. That day the city council and mayor proposed a Seattle Human Rights Commission, established July 17; the commission was authorized to draft open housing ordinance. This did not prevent a July 20 sit-in in the council chambers. On August 28, 1963, the same day as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, 1,000 demonstrators marched from Seattle's First AME Church to the Federal Courthouse. That same day, Seattle Public Schools became the country's first major school system to initiate a voluntary desegregation plan. A week September 3, 1963, the Seattle Human Rights Commission recommended an ordinance against discrimination in housing sales and financing.

An October 20 March in support of open housing drew 1,200 people. Five days the city council, meeting as a Committee of the Whole, held a public hearing on the open housing bill recommended by the Seattle Human Rights Commission; the bill was approved 7-2, but was stripped of the emergency clause that would have made a council vote sufficient to turn the bill into law without the possibility of being overturned by a referendum. As would have been the case with or without an emergency clause, the Committee of the Whole sent the bill to the council as such for a final vote; the two council votes against the final version of the bill were Wing Luke and Charles M. Carroll, both opposing it because the emergency clause had been taken out. On November 27, 1963 the council approved the bill by the same 7–2 margin, without the emergency clause. On December 9, 1963, Ordinance 92533 submitted Ordinance 92497 to the voters by charter referendum as part of a general election on March 10, 1964. However, prospects did not bode well.

On February 12, 1964 voters in nearby Tacoma, Washington defeated similar legislation by a margin of 3-1. On March 7, three days before the referendum vote, over 1,500 attended an open housing rally, marching from several places around the city to Westlake Plaza, but the March 10 election saw the ordin
