Mimesis Narrative Texture Electroacoustic Music

Abstract:

In this article, the author discusses the extent to which time can be considered a poetic element in electroacoustic music. He discusses how listeners are sensitive to the temporal narrative of a work and that this allows the composer to shape the listeners perception of musical pace through the creation of virtual time within the work.
