Uncertainty, the Canon, and Dissident Musics
This chapter illustrates how the concert programming of the Institut de Recherche et de Coordination Acoustique/Musique (IRCAM) embodied an extremely coherent and forceful canonization of twentieth-century high-musical modernism. It explains that IRCAM's resources were channeled into three powerful and legitimizing displacements. These include the interpretation of the musical past, the development of technology and pure science around music, and the assertion of a realm of utopian and scientific thought and theory closely linked to composition.
