Sonic Art Musicology of Electroacoustic Music [MEM]

Abstract:

This book presents a collection of essays that look towards establishing a coherent tradition and an autonomous language in the audio arts. The authors critically address the current state of the art which they argue consists of an assortment of isolated moments and cultural marginalia, and highlight the many relationships that exist between art, noise, experimental music and technology.
