Joel Chadabe (born 1938) is a composer, author, NYU professor, and internationally recognized pioneer in the development of interactive music systems. Chadabe: “For me, creating music with electronics has meant exploration, discovery, creativity, research, performance, and sharing knowledge and ideas with others in a new world of sound. My goal is to share those attitudes and activities with students and colleagues into the future.”

“One basic characteristic of music today is the use of electronics, not only in new sounds but also in new structures which operate as ongoing dynamic processes. As against a traditional musical structure, which has a beginning and an end defined by chords, a dynamic process has no specifically defined boundary in time. It functions as a unique ongoing process. It may start or stop. But it has no structural beginning and no structural ending. The music on this CD exemplifies various dynamic processes as approaches to performance.”
