Third Orchestral Set Overture / David Porter

Composer and Ives scholar David Porter has asked that the recorded version of this work be withdrawn. According to Porter, "This is the first draft for my Master's Project (1979); one of the first Ives scores that I did." He has subsequently revised the work.

Universe Symphony / David Porter, Larry Austin, Johnny Reinhard

At least three composers have taken shots at completing Ives' Universe Symphony.
