Lewis is featured extensively in Unyazi of the Bushveld (2005), a documentary about the first symposium of electronic music held in Africa, directed by Aryan Kaganof.

Lewis gave an invited keynote lecture and performance at NIME-06, the sixth international conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression, which was held at IRCAM, Paris, in June 2006.

In 2008 his work "Morning Blues for Yvan" was featured on the compilation album Crosstalk: American Speech Music (Bridge Records) produced by Mendi + Keith Obadike.

Famous quotes containing the word appearances:

    Truth has scarce done so much good in the world as the false appearances of it have done hurt.
    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)

    The appearances of goodness and merit often meet with a greater reward from the world than goodness and merit themselves.
    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)

    What I often forget about students, especially undergraduates, is that surface appearances are misleading. Most of them are at base as conventional as Presbyterian deacons.
    Muriel Beadle (b. 1915)
