Sounds and Sources in Powers of Two Towards a Contemporary Myth

1996d

Contact!, vol. 9, no. 2. Montréal: CEC.

This article is an excerpt of the paper published in Organised Sound 1(1). The question is: Should we continue to work with abstraction in music? Many problems result from this question: is this abstraction a form of progress? and What is the justification of public funding subsidies for abstract music? The composer proposes a solution with soundscape composition as an alternative to what he calls academic abstraction.
