The development of Electroacoustic music has led to new forms of arts. They are supported by innovative types of communication technology; musique concrète was related to radio studio, realtime live-electronics was made possible by high-speed audio processing, telematic music is relaying on network transmission, and so on. The term « transmission » can be interpreted in a broad sense: It can be a computing system, which enables peer-to peer communication, as well as a social system like broadcasting and social networking. How has been and will be the situation of transmission and communication in the past, present and future of Asian electroacoustic music?
