An Introduction to Eco-Structuralism

Opie, Timothy T. & Brown, Andrew R. (2006) An Introduction to Eco-Structuralism. In International Computer Music Conference, New Orleans, USA.


This paper introduces a new approach to music composition we call eco-structuralism. The techniques of ecostructuralism include analysis and transformation of sonic structures in environmental sounds. This paper elaborates on the motivations, process and techniques of ecostructuralism as a formalized method of music making that implements the principles of eco-composition.
