David Rosenboom, composition and electronics; William Winant, percussion
Zones of Influence is a propositional cosmology activated in music. This release of his Zones of Influence (1984-85) documents for the first time the complete version of a major composition for percussion and computer/electronics that introduced new virtuoso performance techniques along with significant developments in real-time algorithmic composition and advanced interactive linking of percussion instruments with software. Few solo percussion works exist with the scope of this composition. Though the work has been performed extensively, it was never been fully recorded for public release until this double-CD with accompanying booklet containing an article about the work and its history was released by Pogus Productions, (#CD 21074-2, Chester, NY). Zones of Influence was written for William Winant in 1984-1985.
