[ISEA95] Artist Statement: John Wiggins — Masterpiecing

Artist Statement


I created this work by linking, in chronological order, fragments of my own original master tapes of composed music and sound design, made for television from 1989 to 1994. Taken out of its original context of television, this re-combining creates a new context that dictates what fits and functions. As in any environment, maximum fit is the basis for evolution and, by trial and error, these pieces fall together again to be Music.

  • John Wiggins, (USA), age forty-three, is a composer. For the last 10 years, he has been an award-winning sound designer for an American cable television network, HBO (Home Box Office).
