What we wish to show here, is her early and definitive contribution to the tape and electronic music of the late fifties and sixties - her systematic exploration of electronic sounds, which was fundamental to this period.
My work with electronic music began in 1959. My first tape piece was an ambitious four channel work called Time Perspectives. The piece was made by recording small sounds from objects resonated on a wooden wall and changing the tape speed. I used cardboard tubes as filters by inserting the mic into the tube and recording sources through the tubes. I used my bath tub as a reverberation chamber.
