A few good suggestions there. Thanks. I've done this workshop a few times, but in the past it's just been composing for solo guitar, but I thought including electronics might get them fired up. We shall see. "Workshop" sounds more impressive than it really is - I'll just be playing things to the composers - and I certainly won't be patronising them with composition technique!
I knew about the John Metcalfe pieces for guitar and delay, but I've not heard them yet - what are they like, Kath? There's a nice piece by Nigel Westlake for guitar and delay called The Hinchinbrook Riffs.
Not sure Lou Harrison wrote anything for guitar and electronics, but I'll look into it.
Peter Scartabello is new to me. Just did a quick Google and came up with ...The Signal... Op. 4, for classical guitar and tape
written in 1994. I'll follow that up.
There's plenty of repertoire for guitar and electronics/tape, but it tends to suffer the disease that most new music suffers from: it gets premiered and then vanishes without trace! Over the next couple of years I want to resurrect a few gems, including Thea Musgrave's brilliant piece Soliloquy
for guitar and tape. I was lucky enough to play it a couple of years ago, the first time it had been done for a very long time, but unfortunately the hired tape is literally that - a cassette tape. Obviously the tape quality doesn't stand up nowadays alongside CD, but I intend to do something about it. Not sure what though. It would be nice to get a new recording of it as well, as I think the only recording is by Siegfried Behrend on vinyl - and I don't even have a record player anymore! There's an archived review of the LP here:

Please do keep your suggestions coming!
