Welcome to the CEC

Canadian Electroacoustic Community (CEC)



Notation for Electroacoustic and Digital Media

Any discussion of notation for electroacoustic and digital media necessarily addresses several related and equally important issues. An understanding of the nature, needs and intentions of visual representation help ensure the effective, appropriate communication and transmission of the notated work or performance practice.
