Maryanne Amacher (1938–2009) composed experimental electronic musical works that incorporated multiple aspects of acoustics and hearing on a large scale. Amacher studied composition privately with Karlheinz Stockhausen and earned a B.F.A. degree from the University of Pennsylvania (1964), where she studied with George Rochberg. Amacher collaborated (1974–1980) with choreographer Merce Cunningham, composing the music for the dance Torse (1976); and with composer John Cage (1975–1984), for whom she created a storm sound track for his multimedia Lecture on the Weather (1975). She is perhaps best known for her installation series City-Links #1–22 (launched in 1967), Music for Sound – Joined Rooms (begun in 1980), and Mini-Sound series (started in 1985). In her final faculty position, Amacher taught electronic music (2000–2009) at Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, New York.
