ETERNAL MUSIC, by Chris
APERTURE, by John Bischoff, invites sonic exploration and play using a palette of textured noise. By executing mouse-based motions, players can shape large and small changes in the sonic fabric.
CHRIS BROWN creates music for acoustic instruments with interactive electronics, for computer networks, and for improvising ensembles. Recordings of his music are available of Sonore, Tzadik, Centaur, and Artifact Recordings. He has received commissions from the Berkeley Symphony, the Rova Saxophone Quartet, the Abel-Steinberg-Winant Trio, and the Gerbode Foundation. He teaches electronic music at Mills College in Oakland, where he is Co-Director of the Center for Contemporary Music (CCM).
JOHN BISCHOFF is a composer who has created live electronic music for solo performer and in computer network bands since 1978.
