Music: Laurie Spiegel
Dance: Malcolm Low
Laurie Spiegel, composer, software designer, and banjo player, is known widely for her pioneering works with many early electronic music systems, including the GROOVE system at Bell Telephone Laboratories, and for Music Mouse, a software-based musical instrument. She founded New York University's Computer Music Studio. She currently lives and works in New York. "Remembering Home" for electric banjo with digital signal processing was composed after returning to man-made New York City from a recent visit home to the ravines of northern Illinois, a glimpse of a completely different life that might have been, and a family that will never again be what it was.

He went on to perform with Joseph Holmes Chicago Dance, Les Ballets Jazz De Montreal, Ballet British Columbia, Crystal Pite, Ronald K.Brown/Evidence, Zvi Gotheiner and Dancers, Stephen Petronio, Complexions and Margo Sappington, He also spent four wonderful years with Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company where he had the great pleasure of travelling with Bill on his solo tour ãAs I was Sayingä.
