“…the lack of significant opportunities on the West Coast for the support and presentation of art music made composers…more likely to embrace underground, experimental aesthetics. Since the audience was so diffuse, and opportunities for careers so futile, why not spend one’s efforts following the potential of fantastic ideas, rather than worrying about the practical applications of those ideas…?”

Seems like this might be true for creativity in general, eh?
