> Horacio Vaggione: Composition Theory
>
> Horacio Vaggione figures among the most important composers of
> electroacoustic and "mixed" music  (which combines acoustic
> instruments with diverse electronic set-ups). His works are strong and
> original musical experiences. Resolutely prospective in attitude, they
> fill the gap between sound and structure by developing a "multi-scale"
> approach to musical time, implemented by the means of "object
> networks", conceived as "plural symbolic entities" encapsulating
> diverse systems of representation. Objects and networks are procedural
> categories that can be applied with the same degree of pertinence to
> different time-scales, from the note to the micro-sound, or from the
> note to the macrostructure, taking into account however the
> non-linearities arising from the interaction between these different
> levels since they are in Vaggione's words "positive carriers of form".
> Important concepts developed with regard to this approach, are the
> concepts of "layering", "figuration", "articulation", "morphology" and
> "singularity", all explorations conceptualised in Vaggione's prolific
> theoretical writings on music. They propose tools sufficiently
> abstract to contribute to the elaboration of current composition
> theory. Far from exhausting Vaggione's perpetual inventiveness, the
> texts compiled in this issue of the Contemporary Music Review
> constitute the first volume entirely dedicated to his theoretical
> ideas.
