Timbre et synthèse des sons

1986a

L’analyse musicale, No. 3. Paris: ADAM/SFAM: 9-20.
1991. Le timbre, métaphore pour la composition. Paris: IRCAM/Christian Bourgois: 239-260.

The author explains why the notion of timbre has been problematic in electronic music history and suggests why this notion is now at the centre of composers’ thoughts. He focuses on synthesis techniques and psycho-acoustic experiences and links each technical explanation with musical works.
