MIchel Chion

Rob Coley introduced me to the writings of the French composer Michel Chion. He specialises in "electro-acoustic music" and produces works that often that "often incorporate elements from traditional forms- sonatas, requiems, masses, waltzes, mambos- but these are transform in the context of his sound based art which is ultimately associational in structure. His primary concerns has been the association between sound, image and memory (Kostelanetz, 2001, p. 116).
