Arts Journal's Post Classic blog reports that the experimental composer Maryanne Amacher has died, possibly after suffering a stroke. According to Post Classic, she was 66 years old.
Amacher was known for her installations, which caused listeners to question the nature of sound and the effects it has on the brain. She studied with Karlheinz Stockhausen and worked with the likes of John Cage and Alvin Curran. She was the first Rosekrans Artist in Residence at Mills College, and more recently she taught electronic music at Bard.
