The overwhelming majority of Laboratorie New Music composers’ works thus far reproduced, inscribe themselves in a syntactic stucturElist perspective created expressly for our ambitions. Indeed the creative effort in our works is principally brought to bear on the formal aspects of composition: sonic, consonantal, vocalic, rhythmic, graphic, prosodic and numerical constraints, structures and programs.
