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

1996

Contemporary Music Review: A Poetry of Reality, Vol. 15, No. 1-2. London: Harwood Academic Publishers: 73-93.

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.
