                  University of Virginia"

VCCM: Virginia Center for Computer Music was founded in 1988 by
Professor Judith Shatin. VCCM serves faculty, graduate students,
and undergraduate students at the University of Virginia The works
on this compact disc illustrate the focus of activity at the VCCM:
computer music composition, supported by a wide array of software
running on Macintosh, SGI, and Linux computer systems. Areas of
exploration include sound and video, real-time performance control,
and the development and employment of UNIX audio tools. HACK, a
synthesis and sound processing package for NeXT computers
developed by Pete Yadlowsky (VCCM Technical Director from 1988-
1995), was used to create several of the pieces on this CD. The
current Technical Director, David Topper, collaborates with the
Computer Music Center at Columbia University in the development of
RTcmix, a real-time version of Cmix. The VCCM staff includes Judith
Shatin, Director; Alicyn Warren, Associate Director; and David
Topper, Technical Director. Special thanks to Paul Lansky and the
Music Department at Princeton University for the use of Taplin
Auditorium and to the University of Virginia for grants supporting
this recording.
