Electroacoustic Style Overview
Electroacoustic Music Description
Electroacoustic music is a genre of Western art music in which composers use technology to manipulate the timbres of acoustic sounds, sometimes by using audio signal processing, such as reverb or harmonizing, on acoustical instruments. It originated around the middle of the 20th century, following the incorporation of electric sound production into compositional practice.
Electroacoustic music differs from Musique Concrète in the techniques used, although one can often be synonymous with the other.
