About

The word "chimaera" has two definitions: firstly, an organism which consists of two genetically distinct tissues (in much the same manner as this piece); secondly, the creature of Greek mythology with a lion's head, a serpent's tail and a goat's body - an apt metaphor for the strange half-worlds that are able to be realised through the techniques of electroacoustic composition.
