La musique électroacoustique en concert : histoire et perspectives

2001e

L’observation des pratiques musicales : méthodes et enjeux. Paris: OMF: 43-52.

In the first part of this paper, the author retraces the history and key qualities of electroacoustic concert: loudspeaker configuration and inside space versus outside space. The second part studies five loudspeaker configurations for different types of music:
- Simple configurations: 2 and 4 loudspeakers around the listener
- A mixed configuration for mixed works
- Complex configurations : the acousmonium and spatialisateur (IRCAM)

To conclude, the author presents his view of future revolutions relevant to the electroacoustic concert based on new media.
