La musique électroacoustique : analyse morphologique et représentation analytique

Abstract : What we mean here by the analysis of electroacoustic music is a morphological description. It consist in using various criteria to describe the different aural and musical units of the musical material once they have been separated into segments. These criteria can be classi- fied in three groups : internal (spectrum, dynamic, gait, granularity and space), referential (causality, voice, effect and emotion) and structural (formal analysis). Graphical representation has become an essential tool for the analyst and it can take the form of icons — creating strong links between the sound, its analysing criteria and graphic symbolic forms — or symbols — representing sound and its criteria with extremely accurate symbols. Moreover, representation is also an ideal material for multimedia publication : the represented analysis is associated to sounds or even other media to create a very rich didactical document. The theorical plan is completed by analyses of Spirale by Pierre Henry, « Geologie sonore » by Bernard Parmegiani and Stilleben by Kaija Saariaho.
