Si può interpretare la musica elettroacustica?

Eric Maestri


Stephen Davies distinguishes two kinds of musical works: works for performance and works that are not for performance. He argues that electroacoustic music belongs to the latter kind. I will question this distinction by considering the case of electroacoustic music. Granted that electroacoustic music is played in concert, is this a case of presentation of a musical work, as Davies holds? I will argue that the musical act of sound engineers can be seen as an interpretative activity. I will try to understand the object of this interpretation, proposing a possible reformulation of Davies' categorisation.


musical work; performance; interpretation; electroacoustic music; phonography
