An Electric Collaboration:
Electronic Music in the Multimedia Works of Neil Leonard and Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons

This article surveys the electronic music compositions I made for collaborations with Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons on 38 multimedia works over a period of three decades. The use of music composition, sound design, field recordings, loudspeakers integrated with sculpture, and processional music is detailed through the discussion of key works. Sound is considered an essential element in our installation and performance works where the audience is actually inside the artwork itself; their chatter is replaced by listening, and their movement through the galleries is influenced by the sights and sounds of musicians. An appendix lists all of our works, along with collaborators, curators, and venues.
