In "Devils Music" (1985) fragments of radio broadcasts are digitally sampled, looped, re-triggered and occasionally reversed or de-tuned. All material is taken from FM and AM transmissions occurring at the time of the performance. The performer plays off of certain musical ground-rules intrinsic to the sampling system (which consists of three modified inexpensive effect devices) to develop the quirky rhythmic interplay that characterizes the piece. Video excerpt of a performance at Southern Danceworks, Birmingham, Alabama, December 1987, camerawork by Dorah Funmilayo Rosen.
