Adkins, Monty, Scott, Richard and Tremblay, Pierre Alexandre (2016) Post-Acousmatic Practice: Re-evaluating Schaeffer’s heritage. Organised Sound, 21 (02). pp. 106-116. ISSN 1355-7718

This paper posits the notion of the post-acousmatic. The authors consider the work of contemporary practitioners who are indebted to the Schaefferian heritage, but pursue alternative trajectories from the established canonical discourse of acousmatic music. The paper will outline the authors’ definition of the term and outline a network of elements such as time, rhythm, pitch, dynamics, noise and performance to discuss work that the authors’ consider to be a critique, an augmentation and an outgrowth of acousmatic music and thinking.
