Abstract We present a re-realization of David Wessel’s Antony (1977). Antony was originally composed using a novel set of additive synthesis techniques developed for the 4A and the PDP 11/40. Those techniques continued to play a role throughout Wessel’s life as an improviser, and inspired many of his students and colleagues. Our re-realization of Antony involves using those same techniques to reinterpret and perform the very piece that they were used to create.
