A Brief Morphology of Electric Sound
By Dick Raaijmakers, Drawings by Hans van Mourik
Leuven University Press
123 Pages, Illustrated
$40.00 paper original
This book is about the morphology of electric sound, an inherently single-layered type of sound discussed in the light of 'neo-plastic' music as suggested the painter Mondriaan in the 1920s. The book also covers the relationship between the typically uniform nature of electric sound and the multi-layered sound structures used by post-WWII serial composers. Chapters include: Invented Sound, Diagonal Sound, Composed Sound, and Spatial Sound.
