Hybrid Identities


Edited By Flocel Sabaté

This book dissiminates a selected collection of research texts from the Congress Hybrid Identities, held in 2011 in the Institute for Research into Identities and Society (University of Lleida, Catalonia, Spain). Outstanding researchers from Social and Humanities fields adapted the hybridization of society such as a new perspective in order to study and understand the evolution of conviviality from the Middle Ages to current days throughout a comparative space and time. Taking the concept from the anthropology, the hybridization became a new approach for social studies and Humanities. Hybridization offers a historical perspective in order to renew perspectives for study different societies during all historical periods since Middle Ages to current days. At the same time, hybridization appears as a tool for analysing social realities in the different continents of the word. In any case, it is a new way in order to understand how the societies reaches its respective cohesions throughout mixted identities.

In this text I intend to present an ongoing study on contemporary composers of electroacoustic music as a “community of practice” and in particular on their encounter with music that is not euro-cultured. This satisfies both topics covered in the Identitats Híbrides conference for which this text was conceived, because on the one hand composers of electroacoustic music define themselves as a virtual community with a precise identity, and because on the other hand the encounter between electroacoustic music and music that is not euro-cultured can produce hybridization. I will not make any conclusions, because this is a new and quite dense field of investigation. To date there is no widely accepted method of analysis, also because electroacoustic music compositions are extremely diverse and varied. Furthermore, this specific field of study requires the identification of a specific method, which I am elaborating as I proceed with the analyses.

I intend to present the object of investigation, the conceptual basis and the first results of the analytical procedure that I have developed. The...
