Remember electronic music? Big in the Seventies. The Giga-Hertz award keeps composers in hope of a revival.

This year’s Giga winners are John Chowning and Francis Dhomont with 10,000 Euros each.

Daniel Blinkhorn, Leo Hofmann, Alexander Schubert, Ying Wang and Roque Rivas get 8,000 each. That will help pay the utility bills.

  • I believe the album called “Lost Track” pictured in you piece on the Giga Hertz award is by a John Chowning other than the electronic music composer from Stanford.
