Combining studies of sociology, ethno-musicology, philosophy and cultural anthropology, a survey path is traced for a critical approach to electronic music and its modalities of signification, to the potential offered by new technologies and the cognitive and social dynamics that determine the techniques of experimental narratives.
“The soundscape in which we are immersed is no longer constituted by the sounds of nature but by the residual sounds of the machine civilization. To reflect the changes, music cannot be reclined within pseudo-individualized genres, but must become music of crossing and non-identical, an investigation of the interzone between natural / artificial, deterministic / randomic, native / ethnographer, producer / consumer, roots / crossing, exploring its own limits to solve the dichotomies of the digital age. "
