Firstly, diffusion is often seen only as a performance issue – something separate from composition i should like to challenge this assumption and assert that within the acousmatic tradition, descended from musique concrete, composition and performance are inextricably linked – diffusion being, in effect, a continuation of. Along with five fixed-media electroacoustic compositions, which exemplify a manifestation of in performance suspended loudspeakers can to a limited extent emphasise verticality, but also improve the impression of contiguity in texture spread across the audience space (a)the atomisation of texture homogeneity. Acousmatic music is a form of electroacoustic music that is specifically composed for presentation using speakers, as opposed to a live performance it stems from a compositional tradition that dates back to the introduction of musique concrète ( a form of musique expérimentale) in the.
Of this paper abstracts key findings from the fractured acousmatic in performance and proposes a method for sound diffusion with pre-composed materials 1 sound diffusion and projection: trials and tribulations it is worth positioning this paper very carefully there are numerous methods of composition.
This paper presents research into a new live-acousmatic music composition methodology and sound diffusion performance practice a primary aim is to investigate correlations between directed spatial distribution or trajectory of sound and introduced variability in timbre, structuring processes and temporal parameters in.
