2019  Retrospectacles

Retrospectacles is a double-CD retrospective of works for piano and interactive computer composed, programmed and performed by the San Francisco Bay Area experimentalist composer Chris Brown. It showcases recordings made between the 1990’s to 2016 of compositions that explore evolving paradigms of human-machine interaction through live signal processing, generative polyrhythmic textures, and a cohabitation of both formal control and indeterminacy.
