Sound Portraits Radio #3: Laurie Spiegel with Doron Sadja
30 October 2017
Laurie Spiegel is an American composer and a humanist software developer. Composing musical works, as well as the programs used to create them, Spiegel is celebrated for her seminal albums “Unseen Worlds” and “The Expanding Universe,“. Her work on the GROOVE system at Bell Labs and the countless sounds she developed at the Experimental Television Center has made her elemental in both the history of computer programming as well as New York’s experimental music scene. She is a feminist, animal rehabilitator, programmer, and writer whose presence and work over the past forty years has charted a seismic shift in technology, in our relationships to the tools we use, and how these tools have reshaped the lines of creative production.
SOUND PORTRAITS RADIO
Sound Portraits Radio is an extension of the popular Berlin based lecture/listening series, curated by Doron Sadja, that focuses on the work of iconic composers who have paved the way for contemporary electronic music. After an introduction of each artist’s life and work, we listen to a selection of excerpts and complete works from the artist’s repertoire. As Sound Portraits Radio evolves, we will be including a wider range of artists and styles, interviews with artists, on air performances, and more.
