Abstract

This chapter investigates aspects of Chinese electroacoustic music history within the academy (Central Conservatory of Music, Beijing) and with work from independent artists. It focuses on three elements common to working in this country: the use of the nation's musical instruments and musical approaches, samples taken from Chinese music, and extra-musical aspects from Chinese culture.
