Composer Views: Context in the use of computers for musical composition
Brown, Andrew R. (1998) Composer Views: Context in the use of computers for musical composition. In Actes des Journees d'Imformatique Musicale 1998, 1998, France.
The composer, as a creative artist, is an interesting case for the study of computer usage. They typically work deliberately against the grain of convention, are reknowned for persisting with awkward and tedious tasks, and produce works not so much with the intent of stabilising data or a situation but, instead, structuring sound to perturb or surprise the recipients expectations to some degree. In this paper I will address how we might look at composers in a way which helps us understand their computer usage.
