In 2005, Third Practice commissioned 13 artists to create new works for release on [re], a surround-sound DVD-Audio disc:
These artists were asked to consider the relationship between contemporary electroacoustic music and the musical past. To
what degree does new technology suggests new modes of musical expression? To what extent do new techniques of music production
and dissemination represent a break with received notions of musical composition and consumption? Or is it perhaps more
accurate to think of electroacoustic music as a continuation of a shared musical heritage?
That there is no simple answer to these questions reflects the richness and diversity of technical and aesthetic
approaches to electroacoustic music. These brief pieces reflect, reinterpret, comment, recompose or reconsider past
musical compositional techniques, practices, specific works, genres, styles, forms, practices, concerns in light of
electroacoustic music. The works were premiered at the 2006 Festival and are available on the Everglade label.
