Environmental Sound Spatialisation Sound Installation


The author presents various types of environmental music through two categories: spatial conditioning and spatial articulation. In the first category the music is composed with large and long sound textures which slowly change to immerse the listener in a homogeneous sonic state. The author exemplifies this idea with his work Music for Environmental Sound Diffusion (1984). The second category creates spatial movements and spatial effects through the use of localised sonic sources. He details this category with an analysis of his work Music for Passageways (1985).
