Layering

Structure, Musical [Str]  ]

A concept used increasingly in describing electroacoustic work in which ’layers’ of sound (or sound types) are developed throughout a work, normally at a density whereby the listener can follow each layer. This form of horizontal thinking might be seen to be the equivalent of counterpoint in, for example, Renaissance music.
