Undersökning

Elements of electroacoustic music improvisation and performance

Alejandro Olarte has developed a pedagogical package or toolkit for studying and teaching electroacoustic music performance and improvisation. 

In his thesis Olarte discusses Electroacoustic Music, Improvisation, and Performance; the three areas are studied and explored in a combined and holistic manner. The text includes discussions on sonic improvisation and listening modes, the contributions of the electroacoustic genre to modern musicianship, an exploration of a collection of electronic instruments as tools for musical performance and a set of pedagogical activities designed to systematically address the essential questions (the elements) for becoming a sound performer integrating technological means with musical expression.

This research is a response to the modern challenges of designing pedagogical content towards the development of performance skills with electronic instruments and audio technology.
