'Lixiviation'? It's a retrospective compilation. I have the vinyl too. Love the album. I think there's more on the way, too. :tu:

I read ... s/20130924

Lots of good stuff.

She mentions a paper she wrote for the NEA in 1976:
The Buchla was never about the sound—it was about the way the sound moved. So the timbre wasn’t important. Instead of playing a keyboard and having a chord or having a melody, you could move that sound all over the place in incredible new ways of organizing sound. I can’t explain all that here, but in 1976 I did a paper for a grant from the National Endowment of the Arts in which I documented my live performance techniques using the Buchla’s Multiple Arbitrary Function Generator.
Has anyone got a copy? Haven't found it online yet.

If it was a paper written as part of a grant application, then it is probably long gone unless she still has a copy.
