  5. John Cage’s influences: new music for new instruments
  6. Scientific influences
  7. Mathematics and music
  8. The influence of the sonic landscape
  9. Deployed voices: the voice and its transformations
  10. The devices devised for musical interaction: live electronics and interactive systems
  11. The physics of sound, the composition of sound: synthesis of musical sounds
  12. The return to the notion of the instrumental in sound composition: spectralism
