This research essentially concentrates on the realization of fixed media electroacoustic music into aural reality, dealing with issues such as performance, interpretation, reproduction and correlation between compositional aesthetics and the performance situation. Consequently, the critical parameters (artistic and technical) of bringing a piece of fixed media music into sonic reality will be investigated. 

This research entails investigation into how fixed media music has been presented in both past and current practice, especially regarding the influence of technological advances in sound reproduction systems. On the other hand, the impact of presentation circumstances on development of compositional aesthetics in fixed media music will also be investigated.
