Acoustics, psychoacoustics and spectral music

 "Sound synthesis opens truly unheard perspectives, extending the act of composition to the sound material itself. The distinctions between note, frequency, timbre, and harmony become fuzzy, or even irrelevant, and accumulated traditional experience finds itself impotent to organize the emerging sound world."

 

Daniel Pressnitzer and Stephen McAdams
