Espaces compositionnels et temps multiples : de la relation forme/matériau

Abstract : If the problematic of time, material, form, and their relationships is longstanding question in musical composition, the old dichotomy between form and material should be reshaped in view of the technological opportunities making possible a finer and more global apprehension in the handling of time in the scope of mixed music.In this context, the question addressed is to which extent the existence of a continuum between the notions of form and material is linked to the explicit design of temporal interlacing? This question involves new paradigms to understand the many components that determine the identity and the mutual relationships of material and form.Our research unfolds in two complementary axes to develop a compositional framework addressing the specification and the management of heterogeneous intertwined temporal processes at different time scales. The first axis works out an explicit topological representation of compositional spaces (based on simplicial complexes) that smoothes the boundaries between form and material. The second one spells out the various kinds of writing and the new temporal paradigms allowed by the Antescofo synchronous real-time programming language. The specification of multiple times during the composition phase and their management during the performance is developed through a strong relational standpoint.The theoretical and practical propositions investigated in this research works are illustrated on several pieces written during the thesis.
