Socio-Cultural Aspects of Electroacoustic Music Performance Space(s)


Using his own experience of forty-three professional engagements over a period of a year, most of which involved performances on a laptop computer, the author examines the nature of the ‘musical scenes’ into which involvement with computer music has led him. The author contends that the social nature of ‘computer music’ is changing not only because of changes in the technology, but also because of a number of social factors, some of which are examined in this article.
