A definition of parametric categories questioned in the 1980s after investigations on sound material and the displacement of scales of observation; 3. The problem of the Complexity in relation to popular and erudite ideologies; 4. Concepts of "emerging" in contemporary composition, between tradition and modernity; 5. Interdisciplinarity and their conceptual application according to models proposed by the french sociologist and filosopher Edgard Morin. Approaches in practical analysis: a. The relationship between american popular music and erudite european works of Stefano Gervasoni (Godspell); b. Ideological displacement during application of popular music in erudite music; c. Between nature, theory of chaos and music Aksak (Sippal, Dobbal, Nadiheg or Concerti of Gyorgy Ligeti; d. Few cases of relationship between the religious or spiritual related to technology. (Stockhausen); e. From Pop-Rock music to erudite music (Fausto Romitelli); f. Spectrality from South America's popular traditions and contemporary music writing - the popular revisited by computer technology (3e quatuor à cordes « Las Lagrimas de un Angel » and Les Levants de Tihuanaco for orchestra by Claude Ledoux). This specific lighting on the relationship between these composers with music of other traditions will be the starting point to study composing strategies in connection with this situation and to develop appropriate methodologies to such investigations.
