This paper examines Paul Miller's work Errata Erratum in the context of broader assertions linking Miller's work with composers such as Steve Reich and John Cage. The paper discusses the ways in which Miller's work has been positioned within an avant-garde or experimental art music tradition with regard to the creation, recording and performance of musical works. The paper identifies several similarities between Miller's work and that of Cage and Reich but argues these might be best understood as congruencies resulting from parallel but distinct musical traditions. Consequently, this paper suggests it is appropriate to be wary of narratives that seek to position genres or practitioners of Electronica as extensions of an experimental or avant-garde musical tradition.
