Art Acousmatics Pierre Schaffer’s discussion of acousmatic listening truly sets the stage for the innovative music that would soon emerge around the world. The idea of listening to a sound as it is, without trying to identify source is somewhat commonplace in today’s world of musical synthesis. As someone who has recently begun to try and understand the art of sound synthesis, I find that the sort of listening that Schaffer puts forth is very much akin to the style of listening I find myself experiencing when I am exploring sounds, sometimes in search of something specific, but more often I am experimentally adjusting parameters listening to how parameters such as attack, release, depth, filter, rate etc. interact with

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
