  • Alte Schmiede Kunstverein Wien, Schönlaterngasse 9, 1010 Vienna
  • This talk is supported by: Kunstverein Alte Schmiede, Stromschiene

In the course of this lecture, we shall explore together the ways in which acousmatic composition gives access to an infinite number of non-conventional possibilities of linking sounds to enliven a work, and to structure its length so as to keep the listener’s attention. Indeed, for several decades now, many composers have limited themselves far too often to these three stereotyped articulations: 1. tension-release (crescendo-detonation), 2. sustain-rupture (stagnation-deflagration), 3. dissolution (crossfade). These have given rise to an abundant production of “musiques à explosions” (‘music of explosions’): cold, standardised works, with an impeccably modelled form, following the recipes of sound design, invariably sustained by deep, cavernous basses. These repetitive processes are not favourable to inspiration and make such works unlikely to last.
