Une histoire de la musique électroacoustique


Friday 10 June 2005, by Pierre Couprie

All the versions of this article: [English] [français]

This article contains two parts: a history of electroacoustic music and a glossary of common terms.

The history of electroacoustic music is organised in three parts:

  1. Introduction: relating key historical phases
  2. The beginnings: the Italian futurists, Varèse, Nancarrow, and John Cage
  3. Tools: several of the first electroacoustic instruments, the role of recording, spatialisation, the first studios, and North America

After a classification into three categories (terms related to history, intrumentation or genre), the author proposes a definition list for 10 common terms in electroacoustic music (see keywords). At the end, she includes a bibliography.
