Abstract

A discussion on the evolution of live electronic and interactive musics - the relationship of live performer to technology. The idea of 'space frames' is developed. As the live performance reaches wider (prosthesis) control over what is heard 'out there' in the listener's space becomes problematic - we need new ideas of 'foldback' (monitors) to the performer.
