Soundscapes using digital and acoustic sound sources

Using Pro Tools and Ableton Live Software I create music for multimedia, for improvising on clarinet and saxophone, and as an element in my notated work.  I like the idea of a 'superscore' that contains sound and image samples, notated elements, performer directions, a computer program...all possibilities are open.
