    Interview- minimalism explained?
    "Johnson composes with mathematical structures and patterns that develop in a systematic manner. His interest in developing compositional methods from mathematical techniques is long-standing; as early as 1967, he'd written a paper on processing melodies
    through a Markov chain. His effort to articulate the theoretical side of his composing is another long-standing interest"

    Avant composers go virtual by Alan Courtis
    "As with all the projects I've done with Pauline, it was a powerful and meaningful experience. Considering it from its metaphoric corner, the Telematic Concert was not just a concert, but an attempt to communicate beyond all physic barriers. And despite
    that fact that Pauline is not physically here anymore, I'd say I'm still in touch with her. Maybe now there's only just some extra latency."
