Computer Music Journal Volume 41 Number 3 Fall 2017

Computer Music Journal Volume 41 Number 3 Fall 2017
We begin this issue’s articles with an interview by a former interviewee. Edmund Campion, who was featured in our Winter 2004 issue, converses here with noted composer Kaija Saariaho and with her spouse, the multimedia artist and composer Jean-Baptiste Barrière. The interviewees start by discussing recent work, such as Saariaho’s 2015 opera Only the Sound Remains. She states that in earlier works the electronics were mostly an extension of the orchestration, but now the electronic part has assumed a more important role. When writing for electronics, Saariaho starts with her aural imagination, then with her technical collaborator she finds a means to realize that vision; she doesn’t write with a tool’s constraints in mind.

Bringing together scholars, musicians, fans, writers, and community members, including bands, public intellectuals, and members of the UCLA Library Special Collections “Punk Archive,” Curating Resistance: Punk as Archival Method encourages community building within, across, and beyond the university.
