WALK AND DIFFERENTIATION OF SOUND ARTS AND EXPERIMENTAL MUSIC FROM 1913 TO 2009

Like many disciplines, music has gone through great periods of change, reversal and innovation in the last century. Accessible to all, this conference will present all the major movements of experimental music and emerging sound arts. It will be shown how the sound arts differ from experimental music. The presentation will also lay the foundations for the analysis, and conceptual and formal listening, of the sound works that occupy an increasingly important part of the contemporary arts. The conference will be accompanied by the listening of several excerpts from works and some historical videotapes.
