• Little Doorways to Paths Not Yet Taken

Satz, Aura, 2016, Art or design object, Little Doorways to Paths Not Yet Taken

Abstract or Description:

Following on from Satz's previous films on electronic music composers and inventors, this short film provides an intimate view of the studio of American composer Laurie Spiegel (b 1945). Known for her electronic-music compositions and her algorithmic composition software, the film also reveals all manner of music and technology paraphernalia, from music scores to DIY inventions and quirky toy collections. The soundtrack features electronic music composed by Spiegel, and Laurie's voiceover musing on electronic music and the compositional process.
