The extended environment.
The potential in electroacoustic music to amalgamate sounds of natural real-world sources with the powerful signal processing and synthesis offered by computers makes possible interplay between different levels of sonic "reality" and "abstraction". A range of works is discussed in terms of this reality-abstraction continuum, suggesting ways in which articulation of the continuum, through mediation and juxtaposition, offers useful levels of structural interpretation in electroacoustic music.
