Arte e scienza: musica elettroacustica numerica (Arts and Science: Digital electroacoustic music)

1986b

In Doati, Roberto & Vidolin, Alvise (eds.) Nuova Atlantide. Il continente della musica elettronica 1900-1986 (New Atlantis. The electronic music continent 1900-1986). Venezia: La Biennale: 103-120.

This article analyses the so-called ‘electronic revolution’. It presents an historical overview from the first experiments (John Cage, ENIAC, Max Mathews, IRCAM, the 4X and the DX7), different approaches of electroacoustic music (acousmatic music, synthesis, real time, mixed works), and psychoacoustic research. In the end, it presents some quotations taken from Francis Bacon, Honoré de Balzac, Lady Ada Lovelace, Edgar Varèse and Iannis Xenakis.
