    Wow, thanks so much! She left so little recorded material behind, all is appreciated…

    Watched this a few days ago, so good. I love when she starts dropping things.

    Such a loss. For all everyone’s focus on her perceived eccentricities, she really was one of the deeper thinkers of that generation of composers, no small feat.

    I keep listening to this and am impressed with how, over 20 years later, incredibly spot-on she is and, still, a lot of folks aren’t really grasping with what she’s getting at here.

    Fortunately I attended her concert at the Ars in 2005, although I had never heard of her before. It was the most impressive (not only physical) experience of sound in my life – and is up to now. She opened my mind for new possibilies.

    Amen, Scott. Came across this looking for something else – we’re doing our best to get more info into the world! There ARE more materials. This summer there will be exhibitions in Berlin and in the fall, Sao Paulo. We’re trying to publish her writings and raise awareness so there is funding and support for the archiving and dissemination of her work and importantly, deal with how her actual work – the live experience of her approach – can continue without her touch.
