Living Electronic Music by Simon Emmerson

Drawing on recent ideas that explore new environments and the changing situations of composition and performance, Simon Emmerson provides a significant contribution to the study of contemporary music, bridging history, aesthetics and the ideas behind evolving performance practices.

In Living Electronic Music, his first monograph, Emmerson continues both the concern to develop the aesthetics of electronic music and to place it in a wider musical and cultural context. The book is virtuosic in its juggling of many different musics and many different interdisciplinary references. As the author has admitted, it ‘proved impossible to construct a straight-through narrative for this book. Each chapter is designed to be a self-sufficient essay, yet all cross-reference and need each other to get the bigger picture’ (p. xiv). space, causality, performance) run.

Necessarily, then, the discussion sometimes becomes rather metaphysical, as when Emmerson speaks of the "amniotic" nature of sound localization in a rave setting. But throughout even these sections, the overall idea of his work is never lost to obscure, A survey of electronic music, classical to contemporary, tightly organized with a purpose: not to provide a narrative of social or political history through this music; but rather, to examine implementations and implications of the music itself. Necessarily, then, the discussion sometimes becomes rather metaphysical, as when Emmerson.

Simon Emmerson is an electroacoustic music composer working mostly with live electronics. He was born in Wolverhampton, UK, on 15 September 1950.

Since the inception of electroacoustic music in 1948, much has been written about technical developments. It brings together composers from leading academic departments and studios in Britain, the United States, Canada and Paris with a wide range of approaches and opinions, resulting in a study which is likely to have a marked impact on current debates on the future of electroacoustic music. The book is divided into three sections.

Drawing on recent ideas that explore new environments and the changing situations of composition and performance, Simon Emmerson provides a significant contribution to the study of contemporary music, bridging history, aesthetics and the ideas behind evolving performance practices. Whether created in a studio or performed on stage, how does electronic music reflect what is live and living? What is it to perform 'live' in the age of the laptop? Many performer-composers draw upon a 'library' of materials, some created beforehand in a studio, some coded 'on the fly', others 'plundered' from the widest possible range of sources. But others refuse to abandon traditionally 'created and structured' electroacoustic work. Lying behind this maelstrom of activity is the perennial relationship to 'theory', that is, ideas, principles and practices that somehow lie behind composers' and performers' actions. Some composers claim they just 'respond' to sound and compose 'with their ears', while others use models and analogies of previously 'non-musical' processes. It is evident that in such new musical practices the human body has a new relationship to the sound. There is a historical dimension to this, for since the earliest electroacoustic experiments in 1948 the body has been celebrated or sublimated in a strange 'dance' of forces in which it has never quite gone away but rarely been overtly present. The relationship of the body performing to the spaces around has also undergone a revolution as the source of sound production has shifted to the loudspeaker. Emmerson considers these issues in the framework of our increasingly 'acousmatic' world in which we cannot see the source of the sounds we hear.
