“Electroacusticas”

“Electroacusticas”

Maria del Pilar Martínez Villegas (Colombia)

The sound revelations that occurred to Pierre Schaeffer in France in 1948 after the technology of sound recording and reproduction was more developed, began a series of extensive research and experimentation that revolutionized the world of music, the way of making, the way of listening and the means to do so; thus giving rise to what we know today as acousmatic music.

From the recognition of how our senses capture the world around us we can give a direction to the perception to abstract from sound the musical values. Through acousmatic techniques we can build sound universes of original textures where the composer himself is the creator of the sounds used in the composition.
