Paul Lansky, keynote address

Here, for students of 6421, is the article I mentioned in class. This speech was given to a room full of people who know Lansky’s work well, so it makes some assumptions (you may need to listen to his music first: the pieces on our list as well as Mild Und Lise, which he mentions several times).

Lansky keynote, ICMC 2009

More than being an auto-biographical sketch or a reminiscence, the speech seeks to illuminate his changing relationship with computer music but also his observations about the changing landscape of technology and music making generally.

(In the introduction, Lansky refers to a important interview where he formally bid farewell to computer music. This was very public and, at the time, controversial. I will leave it to you to unearth it…)
