Imagining the Source: The Interplay of Realism and Abstraction in Electroacoustic Music

1996

Monday 14 March 2005, by Pierre Couprie

The author studies the virtual and surreal sound world of electroacoustic music. The composers create their sound worlds by:
- combining recognisable sounds which do not coexist in reality
- mixing recognisable sounds and synthetic sounds
He analyses several works by Wishart, Smalley, Dhomont, Cousins, Parmegiani, and Lejeune.
