Talk delivered at the conference When is art Research? at the Townsend Center, UCB, on Friday, Feb. 6, 2004.
First, a brief diatribe about contemporary music and grant money, within the confines of the university. Then, I try to give an expanded definition of technique as a corrective to the one-sidedness of the concept of research. Lastly, I try to give an example of the relationship between technique and research as it applies to my own work in electronic music.
