Discorso sulla Musica Elettroacustica

 >  Textuality  ]

This concept is founded upon the idea that meaning may not lie exclusively in the immanent properties of a singular cultural artefact, but that through interpretation, relationships may be made between any number of artefacts (or ‘texts’) that determine how a particular stimulus might signify. Applied to music, this not only refers to connections between pieces and genres but also conceivably to any cultural signs (e.g. in the form of words, fashion systems, technological narratives, and so on).
