ABOUT THIS RELEASE:

Released on Electronic Music Foundation (EMF), and now distributed via Waveshaper Media, is a series of four retrospective CD releases by electronic music pioneer Joel Chadabe. Chadabe was featured in Waveshaper Media’s 2014 modular synthesizer documentary I Dream Of Wires, and also features prominently in their forthcoming Bob Moog documentary, Electronic Voyager. The CD series, never widely distributed until now, includes two volumes from 2017, alongside two brand-new volumes released now, in 2020, for the first time. Each CD comes housed in a digipack with extensive liner notes.

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.”

On Dynamic Systems (2020 - EMF CD 089) - music recorded between 1997-2009: “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.”
