Abstract:

This dialogue between composers David Behrman and Ron Kuivila centres on the ephemerality of technology and technological innovation in musical practice over the last 40 years. The conversation focuses on a musical lineage that begins with the early, live electronic music of John Cage and David Tudor, the projects of Experiments in Art and Technology (EAT), the works of the Sonic Arts Union and the San Francisco Tape Music Centre.
