The performed occurrences are composed of the same sonic material. The different components of the ideal object, assigned to different instrumental parameters, are systematically recombined in order to create new sonic results. However, listening here seems to be less the perception of auditory events than an ontological experience in which sounds indicate the virtual presence of their “conceptual” cause. Each sounding study is then better understood as a diachronic “object” than a musical piece.
The term “instantiation” is a technical term in contemporary metaphysics describing the relationship between an universal property and its actualized and perceptible occurrences.
