i'm a little late in the game, but
bernard parmegiani's _la creation du monde_ is really incredible stuff.
i'd call it concrete, but i think standard practice among concrete composers
was to catalogue the sound sources and, in most cases, leave them relatively
intact (concrete's more populist little brother, "plunderphonics", has a
similar "rule". these are two, notable instances to which mccluhan's
infamously overused "the medium is the massage" mantra actually does apply).
i wouldn't call it "electro-acoustic" a la xenakis or stockhausen, because
it's too - forgive the "verbing", a practice held over from Economies and
Medias New - collaged ("concretey", if i've been drinking).
i haven't been motivated to hear anything else, but newer autechre's
beginning to make more sense to me, now.
more like this, please.
