Chadabe Wins 2007 SEAMUS Award
02 Apr 2007
By: JoelChadabe

http://www.seamusonline.org/newsletter/07_Apr_Issue_2.pdf

Joel Chadabe was recently honored with the 2007 SEAMUS Award in recognition of his pioneering work in interactive composition and instrument design, his book Electric Sound, his advocacy for electronic music through the Electronic Music Foundation, and his work on raising awareness of environmental issues through sound art. Composer Kurt Stallmann interviewed Chadabe for the April issue of the SEAMUS newsletter where the two of them discuss models for new musical instruments, ranging from simple triggers to complex interactive systems: "These models suggest a fundamental questioning of what it means to compose and realize computer music. He [Chadabe] makes a clear distinction between the rendering model and the interactive model. The 'rendering' model uses technology to create an idealized performance of the composer's structured ideas. The interactive method defines a system of instrument behaviors associated with varied input from performers whereby the process of mutual engagement through performance forms the work. In line with systems developed to support this way of composing, he mentioned the visionary developers of the Kyma/Capybara system (Scaletti and Hebel) where real-time, open-ended responsiveness to live input was an initial design goal of this integrated digital system extending back to the late 1980's."
