Momentform

Musicology of Electroacoustic Music [MEM]  >  Discourse within Electroacoustic Music  ]

Each moment, whether a state or a process, is individual and self-regulated, and able to sustain an independent existence. The musical events do not take a fixed course between a determined beginning and an inevitable ending, and the moments are not merely consequents of what precedes them and antecedents of what follows.
