Language: English

In this article, the author discusses her experiences as an early composer of computer and electroacoustic music. She includes a discussion about her collaborative pieces Angels (1992) a virtual reality work, and Masks of Eternity (1994) a computer-realised solo tape work. She reflects on the ways in which the collaborative process and interactions with various music technologies have impacted her creative thinking and her music, and offers some speculation on the paradigmatic shifts in fundamental conceptualisations of composition that are occurring through the emergence of new electronic media.
