John Rockwell, "A Diverse Program of Computer Arts"


John Rockwell, "A Diverse Program of Computer Arts."
New York Times (April 11, 1973)

John Rockwell reports from the second Monday's events of the first International Computer Art Festival, describing the evening as something of a media blitz. Computers can be used artistically in almost as many ways as people can think to make art, and Monday's offerings showed an impressive diversity. Rockwell discusses the presentations and hails Charles Dodge's Speech Songs (1972) as the most unusual of them all and strikingly expressive. Works by Dimitri Devyatkin, Gary Nelson, Lillian Schwartz, Ed Emshwiller, and Alison Knowles are also discussed.
