Six historical electroacoustic compositions from the 1950s to the 1960s are analysed in search of a series of ‘narrative strategies' whose validity can be extended to the electroacoustic repertoire. In this paper we propose some examples of the narrative elements, showing analogies and differences in their use by different composers and in the context of different studios of production.
