View Finder has its roots in early 1970s pieces that focussed on thick textures made by numerous slowly-shifting triangle waves. A couple of decades later, in software versions, It was an installation in which.a camera detected the motion of people or elements in a landscape and triggered changes in the ongoing electronic sound. In recent versions, sounds performed by players of acoustic instruments are mixed with electronic sounds handled by a laptop operator. The instrumentalists make mostly quiet sounds that blend with the electronics, like those that might emanate from imaginary creatures wanting to remain half hidden in a forest.
