onxidlib's notes (with a few of my own aditions):
Some of the music from the Workshop portion of this set (discs 1-3) has been issued commercially: "Every Single One of Us is a Pearl," "Ruby, My Dear," and "Kunstmusik II" are on Pearls (FMP 0380) which is available at:

"Mara�ao," "Composition 23B," Jahrmarkt," "Haneb�chen," and "The Forge" are on Baden-Baden '75 (FMP CD 137). This was re-released a few years ago as part of a massive FMP box set:
This was a limited edition, so probably difficult to obtain, and if quite pricey! I am not exactly sure if it is also available as a single cd. "Composition 23B" is titled "U-487" on the official release.

These titles were recorded November 25-27 at the S�dwestfunk Studios in Baden-Baden during the New Jazz Meeting dedicated to "Ten Years Globe Unity Orchestra."

For Part 2 of Kowald's "Jahrmarkt," the group is divided into six small groups throughout in the studio. From left to right in this recording:

Kowald (tuba), Schlippenbach (acc), Br�tzmann (cl)
Parker (ss), Wheeler, Rutherford
Christmann, Niebergall, Lovens
Mangelsdorff, Dudek (ts)
Rava, Carl (ts), Pilz

The issued version of "Jahrmarkt" is presented as a single performance but in fact -- because of the logistics of arranging musicians in groups around the studio -- it was recorded in three pieces.

Rutherford's "Hip Hymn No. 2" also involved complicated logistics. The musicians are arranged in four groups from left to right:

Braxton, Dudek, Parker, and Wheeler
Christmann and Br�tzmann
Schlippenbach, Kowald, Niebergall, and Lovens
Rava, Carl, Pilz, and Mangelsdorff

In addition, Rutherford prepared a tape of the synthesizer part, and the group played on top of it.

Discs 4-5 were recorded during a public performance on November 28 at Kurf�rstliches Schloss in Mainz.
