about David Cope his work his music scores software experiments in musical intelligence


1972, tuba and prepared tape, Seesaw Music, 8'

"Cope has been very precise in his notation throughout the work, an advanced composition...an exciting avenue for the tuba player looking for one of the newer directions to pursue."

--Robert Levy, Brass World, vol.8, no.1

"David Cope, in his composition Spirals for tuba and tape, is perhaps the most adventuresome in his use of new techniques. The overall effects....do not interrupt the general flow of the music. Cope has achieved in this piece an experience for both audience and tubist."

--Barton Cummings, The Contemporary Tuba, 1984 (Whaling Music Publishers, New London, CT.)
