Latin American Electroacoustic Music Collection


Latin American Electroacoustic Music Collection: Music selection
Latin American electroacoustic music has a long, interesting, strong and prolific history, but it’s a history that is little known even within the region itself. Many composers born or living in Latin America have been very active in this field, going back as far as some 50 years in some countries, but the availability of electroacoustic music recordings and information in Latin America has been a problem for educators, composers, performers, researchers, students and the general public.

In an effort to preserve, document and disseminate at least a portion of the electroacoustic music created by Latin American composers, an archive has been developed at the Daniel Langlois Foundation for Art, Science, and Technology. Currently, the following resources are available:

+ + An historical introduction describing the creation of electroacoustic music in Latin America and the process used to develop this collection. This text is also available as a PDF file in english or spanish.

+ + A selection of 558 compositions created using electroacoustic media by Latin American composers between 1957 and 2007, available for listening online.

+ + Biographies and interviews with composers.

+ + Graphic material including scores and pictures.

+ + Finding Aids in the collection: 390 composers and 1723 compositions.
