Abstract

This thesis accompanies the five electroacoustic compositions of the Bardo series and presents a discussion of symbolism within contexts of Chinese culture and the electroacoustic medium. The work develops a view of interaction between cultures of East and West, considering issues raised in terms of philosophical research and as a substantial creative resource for composers and listeners.
