Artist Statement:


    Joan is Back. . . is an interactive composition for computer, processed sounds and synthesizers. The work was realized at the Computer Music Conference in Brazil in1996, at CNMAT (U.C. Berkeley Center for New Music and Audio Technologies) and Ms. Matheus’ private studio. It explores timbral space, visual space and gesture using the Lightning II alternative MIDI controller designed by Don Buchla. The structure consists of multiple layers: A through-composed stratum and a collection of themes whose ultimate order is determined in real time by the performers’ gestures in space with the Lightning wands. The score is written in the MAX programming language for Macintosh.
