Editorial: Time in Electroacoustic Music
This issue addresses the multifaceted topic of time in electroacoustic music. The subject is of course a vast one, as all music is by nature temporal. In Western classical traditions, the various manifestations of time ended up being notated through a plethora of conventions: tempo markings, note durations, bar lines, timbre (expressed through a combination of instrumentation, dynamics, articulation and ornamentation but usually with the finer details supplied by the performer). As a result, the few discussions of temporal properties of music beyond the pitch-centred harmonic/melodic texts were usually subsumed into discussions of metre, rhythm and, sometimes, large-scale formal design.
