A portfolio of electroacoustic and acousmatic compositions

By Simon Scardanelli


A portfolio of electroacoustic and acousmatic compositions realised through a variety of audio and audio-visual media, and with a particular emphasis on using speech as compositional material. The use of speech in compositions raises questions of political intent and responsibility, and these are addressed. The challenges of composing electroacoustic works for theatre, film and for a site specific installation are also discussed. The use of electroacoustic principles in the production of rock music is examined with reference to my own works in this genre. \ud \ud List of files: \ud PDF: Commentary \ud MP3: A Sharp Intake of Breath (2000, 6’15”) \ud MP3: Fragments of Democracy (1999-2000, 16’55”) \ud MP3: de(re)construction (2000, 13’21”) \ud MP3: Aqualogica (2000, 11’13”) \ud MP3: Guitar = God (2009, 12’16”) \ud MP3: The Lonely Bridge Song (2001) Junkie (2’12”) \ud MP3: The Lonely Bridge Song (2001) Begging (4’16”) \ud MP3: The Lonely Bridge Song (2001) Background ambience (extract) (1’39”) \ud MP3: That Dangerous Sparkle (2007) The Valentines (5’04”) \ud MP3: That Dangerous Sparkle (2007) Let There Be A Place (4’53”) \ud MP3: That Dangerous Sparkle (2007) When You’re Lying (3’49”
