This article is concerned with issues of perceived live-ness in fragile.flicker.fragment (2010), an electroacoustic suite in nine movements composed by the author. The role and recording of instrumental sounds is discussed with reference to Bridger's metaphoric/metonymic perception of sounds in electroacoustic music and Dellaira's three modes of recording. The final section situates our perception of the composition within an understanding of Richard Allen's notion of cinematic projective illusion.
