L'ESPACE DU SON
The first issue of the musical aesthetics review LIEN was published in
It is now republished with certain articles updated by the original
The conquest of space is no longer of the realm of Myth.
Music itself uses space as a new dimension of composition and
interpretation. This dimension is not only technical.
It arises from the evolution of aesthetical reflection.
In this special issue, 25 composers and researchers present their ideas,
giving a modern overview of the answers to the question which an
evergrowing number of people are raising.

Throughout this exploratory journey, three main themes concerning the
relationship of sound to space are developed :
reflected space : inquires about the relevance and complexity that space
adds to the sound of music.
invested space : asks the essential question of the setting up of
general principles and syntax of diffusion as made possible by modern
plural space : includes other places, other functions, becoming pure
L'ESPACE DU SON II
"The space is rarely taken seriously by the traditional music, the space
has never been a compositional dimension witch is in position to rival
with the others." (Stroppa)
It is certainly not a statement that we will adopt as our own. Why ?
Maybe because the music in witch we are interest get away from the
tradition or rather because it is already the tradition of tomorrow ?
However that may be, here is l'Espace du Son II, a new thematic issue
witch is the continuation of the thought begin in 1988, broaden it,
create a contradictory
debate in witch many authors take part :

We have asked to a philosopher to introduce a new problematic : Espace
de la musique et musique de l'espace, it gives a review of the
Topophonies ou l'espace-paysage studies the presence of the sound in the
places where man lives, analyses the problems of our sound environment
and dares some equivalences between environment and tone.
L'espace rayonné reminds that the "radiophonical space" was the one of
the first big electroacoustical works and that it remains the mental
scene of all space virtualities.
Espace de projection/projection dans l'espace offers a forum for the
controversy witch divides multi-tracks techniques and stereophony. Some
"space machines" are also presented.
Réfléchir l'espace tries to take stock of compositional positions witch
are not inspired by the same strategies but witch attest the irruption
of the space as full dimension of the XXI century music.
At last, Rêver l'espace ? inquires about the realm of fancy in
N.B. : Most of the texts are written in French.
