I place a stereo microphone in my kitchen and open my back door so
that the sound of the city and fading rain come in. I start to
record. At about 8 minutes, my cat meeows. I take the recording and
very very slowly pass it through a high pass filter, slowly removing
everything below about 800Hz.

An orchestra makes sound. The gear doesn't make sound, it produces a
signal. The signal is transduced by a loudspeaker and the sound
appears as a (or more) point source(s). This is the commonality of
ea. (?)

Orchestral music is a sub-genre of (the meta-genre) "music".

In your proposed descriptor, is ea a meta-genre?
