Abstract :
[en] In the wake of the Digital Revolution, a new type of art music also began to emerge a decade ago: music that is primarily created on the computer and composed not only with notes and samples, but also with images, videos, texts, environmental sounds, words and concepts. While absolute music could at best make ephemeral references to the world via structural analogies, this relational music is able to refer to reality in a more specific way. "Music and Reality" develops model analyses of exemplary works that show how art music today uses these new possibilities of world-relational composing to articulate aesthetic content in fields as diverse as conceptual music, musical postmodernism, straight theatre, political music, visual art, and opera.
