The author presents two paradoxes:
- the theory of the sound object is not effective for a composer but the origin of new electroacoustic music is nevertheless the acousmatic theory of listening
- the study of sonic environments needs new classification tools: might Schaefferian classification represent such a tool? The question is important because Schaeffer never reflected on sonic environments.
