Horacio Vaggione: Towards a Syntax of Sound


Monday 20 March 2006, by Rob Weale

This article stresses the important contribution of Horacio Vaggione to inserting the
computer within a musical project. The theoretical contributions of Vaggione shed light
on the way he takes advantage of the computer in his musical activity-not merely for
problem solving, but rather as a component of a complex system which intervenes in a
genuine polyphony of processes involving a multiplicity of time scales. His musical works evidences concern and imagination concerning morphology: he builds sturdy structures from minute grains. His music reveals novel figures: while bringing to the ear a world made up of atoms, it manifests the arrow of time.
