“Appetizer” presentation speech, program notes, offer a form of symbolic framing of the works at the same time and the very meeting places with the audiences during the concert, which are the core of the programs. This has not been studied up to now, at least as a specific phenomenon, a supporting documentation with a significant priority to musicology analysis considerations and programming of works. I do consider it as a concentration of preocupations and intentions given by the composers who consider they must communicate with the audience and mediatize according to their own order. This entails a reflexive attitude about communication and eventually pedagogical questionning, even more concerning electracoustic music.
