The projects, ranging from digital synthesis and algorithmic composition to the integration of live electronics, from radio art to sound installation, encompass a broad spectrum of that locus where digital technology stimulates musical fantasy. "Reading Castañeda" is a journey through a sound landscape: a dream world of bizarre sounds. The ear can take a walk through it just as the feet find their way through a rugged mountain region. The composition was inspired by the books of Carlos Castañeda.
