The Different Computer of Laurie Spiegel

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 89 min
Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: WBAI

Computer music pioneer Laurie Spiegel discusses her compositional tools and processes with host Jude Quintieré in a program recorded in 1979. Having then recently completed a number of works using the GROOVE system at Bell Labs, Spiegel describes the flexibility of her programs, and her approach to sequencing and real-time manipulation of synthesized sounds. The composer further elaborates on the evolution of her personal interests, especially in regard to her use of specific pitch and rhythmic materials drawn from her experience as a banjo and lute player. Compositions heard in their entirety include “Patchwork”, “Waves”, “The Orient Express” and “Expanding Universe”.
