a portrait by Elisabeth Schimana and Lena Tikhonova
She studied with George Rochberg and Karlheinz Stockhausen before initiating her telematic City Links series (1967-79). With the Triadex Muse-Synthesizer she began developing ear tone music in the 1970s. Amacher collaborated with the Merce Cunningham Dance Company and with John Cage. From the 1980s on she developed stagings for her work’s ways of hearing.
