About the project
The Institute for Computer Music and Sound Technology at the Zurich University of Arts examined in a research project electro-acoustic compositions of the 2oth an 21th century. The main focus was the analyses of the performance practice of these works, especially regarding the question how “old” electroacoustic and, because of this, analogue conceived pieces can be “translated” into the present, i.e. into the digital, without losing their original sound quality and taking into account the main intention of the composers.

Les Espaces Électroacoustiques III
The third project was devoted to works created from the mid-1980s onwards, selected as case studies of live electronic music performance practice as it evolved since the introduction of digital technologies. The works presented here can cover only a part of this diverse practice. Nevertheless, the three albums open an updated view of the fascinating repertoire of electroacoustic music and document approaches to spatiality that can be particularly well represented in surround format. The fact that the second album received the prestigious annual German Record Critics’ Award (Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik) in 2020 confirms the efforts to produce high-quality recordings accessible in surround format.
