This shortlist presents some fine examples of ‘organized sound’: the final chapter of Multicast Dynamics’ four-part series, audio/visual experiments from Tobias Freund & Valentina Berthelon, urban dreamscapes from Mario Gronnert and CommonSen5E, and, to conclude, a work by Richard Eigner that may best demonstrate why Varèse’s definition is a good one.
