Abstract:

In this article, the author reflects on his experiences in the English experimental music scene of the 1960s and early 1970s, describing the limitations and possibilities he and his colleagues encountered and the results that followed from them. He also discusses the connections and discontinuities between this musical work and his current career in cybernetics. This discussion takes the form of a dialogue between his past self, the experimental composer, and his present identity as a researcher in cybernetics.
