Composer and sound installation designer Laetitia Sonami left France in 1976, after spending a year with Eliane Radigue. She continued her studies in electro-acoustic music with Joel Chadabe (SUNY-Albany) and then Robert Ashley and David Behrman at Mills College, where she taught until the dissolution of the Center for Contemporary Music (CCM) in 2023.
Laetitia Sonami created the Lady's Glove in 1991 and composed for this pioneering instrument for 25 years. She then created the Spring Spyre, her current instrument, which applies Machine Learning to live synthesis.
