Here's what Steve had to say about his performance.

"This live, 3D performance features me, Steve H (aka Stephen Horelick composer of Reading Rainbow), playing the Buchla 200e. These sound gestures and timbres are then processed, sometimes looped and surround panned (using Fibonacci ratios) in Logic Pro X. Of course this is YouTube so this is a stereo mix!

Thanks to Mercy college for providing the space, master recording in Pro Tools and the tech support to make this happen. And thanks, too, to RiverArts for getting me out of my studio to perform my 3D surround compositions!"
