Manchester eScholar Services

Supported by The University of Manchester Library

In April 2016 Manchester eScholar was replaced by the University of Manchester’s new Research Information Management System, Pure. In the autumn the University’s research outputs will be available to search and browse via a new Research Portal. Until then the University’s full publication record can be accessed via a temporary portal and the old eScholar content is available to search and browse via this archive.

    A Few Notes on Stem-based Composition: A Case Study.

    Abstract

    Stem-based multichannel compositions promise greater flexibility in different listening situations and therefore improve the chances of a rewarding listening experience. The idea in stems is to separate materials or spatial layers into a collection of sound files which can be reproduced in various ways depending on the situation's needs. Also, splitting musical layers into separate sound files could result in higher spatial depth and improved off-centre listening. However, composing and performing stem-based compositions poses its own challenges which shall be laid out in the paper. The discussion will focus on the benefits, limitations and compositional methodology of spatial stems.
