  Article:   ON THE PERFORMANCE OF ELECTRONIC MUSIC – INTERVIEW WITH COMPOSER ADRIAN BORZA.

Authors:  MIRELA MERCEAN-ȚÂRC.
 
       
         
  Abstract:   An overview of Adrian Borza’s activity comprises interesting preoccupations as well as figures, as the composer knows and uses over 50 utility software and operating systems and programming languages and environments, which have generated the authoring of 12 software programmes that he holds author’s rights for. His 60 music works, composed mainly in the electro acoustic genre, are the outcome of such pursuits in the field of computer programming. His most recent works reflect composer Adrian Borza’s pursuits regarding the possibilities of real-time interaction of computers and performers as well as the indeterminacy coefficient of the computer’s actions in relation to the sonorities spontaneously created in the improvisational process. I thus initiated a discussion on the paradigm changes in music performance seen as a phenomenon that integrates the “computer” into electronic music, replacing or not the performer in the traditional creator - art work – performer - public equation.
