Dear colleagues:

I feel/believe there are discernible international and
national styles of electroacoustic and computer music,
exemplified especially in solo tape and fixed media
pieces. For example, these composers are models of
recognized national styles, if not international:

Paul Lansky, USA
Fracis Dhomont, Canada/France
Jonty Harrison, UK
John Chowning, USA
Jean-Claude Risset, France (USA)
Barry Truax, Canada (Netherlands)
Simon Emmerson, UK
Morton Subotnick, USA
James Dashow, USA (Italy)
Lars-Gunnar Bodin, Sweden
Natasha Barret, UK (Norway)
Denis Smalley, UK (France)
Karlheinz Stockhausen, Germany
et al.......

My point is that there is a recognized body of work in our
medium by composers based in various countries who
have distinguished our medium and their countries of
origin as well. True?

I do not mean that the above list is all-inclusive, of course.
Just a list of the composers whose music and influence
came to me right away.

What do you think?
