Thanks, Ernst. Lewis spent a year at IRCAM in Paris and I suspect his piece is something he worked on there. Possibly Sorey too.

Emmanuelle Ophèle is a terrific flautist. She’s plays the principal “midi” flute in this performance of Boulez’ “...explosante-fixe...”:

Actually, now I've downloaded it, the PDF file says Lewis' piece was written in 2014 or so, but his incorporation of electronics does date back to his time in IRCAM, which specialises in such things.

George Lewis studied at the IRCAM in the 1980s. Later he also was teaching there.
On youtube one can see / hear an excerpt of a composition by Lewis with Léandre, Ewart and Lacy plus software / pc (maybe an early version of Lewis's Voyager).
A friend of mine was at the concert by pure chance.
The year is 1984.

Last year I saw the complete concert somewhere at the www - but I forgot where the video was hosted.
