Abstract:

In this article the author provides an overview of the many consequences the arrival of electroacoustic music has produced on musical material and discusses the advantages of an interaction between manifest instrumental and "subjacent" electroacoustic writing - meaning the compositional processes themselves. The article includes a discussion on the revolutionary role that time expansion plays in obtaining a deeper perception and evaluation of the sound phenomena. The author uses some of his own works to exemplify the compositional aspects discussed.
