Dynamic Systems is a compilation of recordings from 1997 through 2012.

Joel Chadabe is familiar to many synthesizer enthusiasts as a pioneer in his field, conceptualizing and commissioning the legendary CEMS (Coordinated Electronic Music Studio) System, which was built in 1970 by his life-long friend and colleague Bob Moog, and his company, R.A. Moog Co. He is also the author of "Electric Sound: The Past and Promise of Electronic Music".

"In 1998, I was asked by Keyboard Magazine to write a review of Kyma, a new digital hardware/software system created by Carla Scaletti and Kurt Hebel. I purchased Kyma after writing the review. I composed Many Times …, One World 1, Micro Fictions, and Different Cities with Kyma. And I still use it."

"From that time to the present, when people ask me what I do as a composer, I explain that I do not compose pieces, I compose activities. A 'piece', whatever its content, is a construction with a beginning and end that exists independent of its listeners and within its own boundaries of time. An 'activity' unfolds because of the way people perform; and consequently, an activity happens in the time of living; and art comes closer to life." - Joel Chadabe
