I was wondering, when you compose something that includes magnetic tape, how does it work when somebody else wants to perform that work? Do you send out a copy of that tape? I am thinking of some Nono works that use tape and live instruments. Can you get those tapes somewhere along with a score? I guess it would be digitalized by now. How does it work? In a piece like Electric Countetpoint by Reich, though, I would guess that you create the tape/file yourself, right?

Thanks for the answers. Tape is an intriguing thing in classical music, though I'm not quite sure yet as to what exactly to make of it. Somehow, for me, the romantic notion of classical music being inherently unplugged, as it were, is quite strong.
