Socio-Cultural Aspects of Electroacoustic Music Electroacoustic Music


In this article, the author explores symbolic imagery in the world of electroacoustic music, as presented in both popular technological music publications and in the language of fourteen Canadian women composers. While mainstream discourse uses imagery that emphasizes power and control, these composers use metaphors of painting, dancing, sustenance, addiction, wilderness, meetings, circuitry, curses, locks, boxes, blessings and desire to describe their work. This imagery suggests different ways for artists to think about their interaction with technology.
