Environmental Sound Acousmatic Listening Strategy


In this article, the author discusses his compositional philosophy and his theory of listening, in particular his ’blind’ listening approach - the application of an acousmatic approach when composing with and listening to natural sound environments. He exemplifies this discussion through his work La Selva (1997) which comprises of field recordings made in the La Selva rainforest reserve in Costa Rica.
