Ian Fredericks played a prominent role in the development of Australian electronic music and mixed media composition from the mid 1970s until 2001. His work in establishing both the SEUSS electronic music studio at Sydney University and the subsequent founding of the computer music and audio-visual composition and performance group watt with Martin Wesley-Smith in 1976, paved the way for the generations of artists that have since explored this field. The author presents lightly edited excerpts from the last interview with Ian Fredericks before his passing on 15 March 2001.
