The term "electro-acoustic music" has been getting increasing use in recent decades. It is often used interchangeably with "electronic music" but in fact the two terms can indicate an interesting distinction: in electronic music, the sounds are usually entirely synthetic (such as the waveforms produced by oscillators) whereas in electro-acoustic music the sounds can be of natural origin as well as synthetic. Since my compositions since 1989 have made increasing use of natural sound sources (often altered beyond recognition), I felt it was appropriate to use the second term for my second electronic CD.

Whatever one calls this music, it should be noted that its style—at
least in my case—is very abstract and spaced-out sounding!
