Abstract or description

This paper will discuss stylistic, compositional and technical approaches to the piece submitted for From Tape to Typedef. In addition to this, it will attempt to contextualise some of the practices and approaches used to compose the piece, with special focus on how the source materials were selected, captured and further abstracted to tentatively step towards a way of creating works which span the divide between commercial, beat-lead musics and more traditional acousmatic pieces. In addition to the `technical' aspects of composition, the paper will incorporate a review of some perceived trends that are apparent within today's exploratory electronic music and how these trends have influenced the composition of the piece. Whilst particular attention will be paid to Volmet North, the talk will also dis-cuss wider factors which have directed compositional methods.
