Alan Sutcliffe of the Computer Arts Society

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 27 min
Event Type: Interview Program Origin: KPFA

Alan Sutcliffe, British computer artist and Director of the Computer Arts Society, the world’s largest federation of cybernetic artists, talks with Charles Amirkhanian about his work. Alan and other members of his Society have used computers in a number of inventive ways so as to produce art, both visual and musical. Alan also agreed to sing “Stolen Kisses Sweet” for the KPFA microphone as he accompanies himself on his antique player piano. While not a contender for a Grammy, Alan certainly deserves an award for good sportsmanship for allowing KPFA to broadcast this musical debut. This interview was recorded April 2, 1972 in Wokingham England. (from KPFA Folio)
