Abstract:

The author analyses the current role of Schaefferian theory for composers, researchers and listeners in eight steps:

  1. The Schaefferian heritage: the place of Schaefferian theory in current analysis and aesthets theories
  2. The composer and the analyst as listener: the listening experience
  3. Pertinence: the analytical criterion of pertinence
  4. Listening strategies: a discussion about Delalande’s theory
  5. The sound object and its different meanings, the sound object as an event
  6. Metaphorical frameworks: the place of metaphor in the music theory of electroacoustic music
  7. Methodology and flexibility in musical analysis
  8. The relational frameworks: on musical archetypes (temporal structures, relation between sounds) in acousmatic music and analysis

In conclusion, Denis Smalley insists on the necessity of understanding listening strategies to produce an analytical theory for acousmatic music.
