L’objet sonore ou l’environnement suspendu

1999

Ouïr, entendre, écouter, comprendre après Schaeffer. Paris: INA-GRM/Buchet-Chastel: 83-106.

The author presents two paradoxes:

  1. the theory of the sound object is not effective for a composer but the origin of new electroacoustic music is nevertheless the acousmatic theory of listening
  2. the study of sonic environments needs new classification tools: might Schaefferian classification represent such a tool? The question is important because Schaeffer never reflected on sonic environments.
