Socio-Cultural Aspects of Electroacoustic Music

Abstract:

In this article, the author offers a critique of Modernist approaches to electroacoustic music that he believes have resulted in a tendency towards elitism and intellectual exclusivity. He argues for an alternative approach in which innovative exploration of the musical medium is balanced against cultural rootedness.
