What is SONUS?
SONUS is an online listening library (jukebox) of electroacoustic works, created and managed by the CEC for the benefit of the greater Electroacoustic / Computer Music / Sound Art community.
The CEC created SONUS to make electroacoustic pieces easily accessible to audiences everywhere. SONUS is a valuable tool for composers to promote their work, and a fascinating resource for listeners, with over 1800 works in a wide variety of aesthetics already in the catalogue.
An overview and history of SONUS, with comments by Kevin Austin, Steven Naylor and CEC Patron Al Mattes can be found here.
Invited composers, educators and other individuals create a selected listening list of interest as much to new initiates in electroacoustics as to the seasoned electroid. The CEC's CDs can also be found here as playlists.
