A SHORT SELECTION 

A REBIRTH OF RHETORIC IN RECENT CONTEMPORARY MUSIC

The rebirth of rhetoric is one of the most striking features that we observe in contemporary music composed after the 1980s. In this paper I explain what musical rhetoric is, and I give examples of its presence in many works.

FORMS OF BEHAVIOUR AND A NEW PARADIGM OF PERCEPTION TO THE PRODUCTION OF NEW SOUNDS

In this very short paper I launch a new hypothesis on how our listening works, and I uses this hypothesis as a start point to simulate an alternative method for sound synthesis.

DA FIGURAÇÃO EM MÚSICA

In this text I explain what abstraction and figuration are in music, and what sort of relationships they establish with sound materials and musical constructions.

ARTE E CULTURA: MÚSICA E SEMIÓTICA

In this paper I present an overview on semiotics showing how it happens in music, and I discuss the special case of self-referential art objects.
