He also produced some radio broadcasts on contemporary music National Argentine Radio, He also discovered the latest works of Iannis Xenakis and attended, in Germany, the summer courses at Darmstadt. Lejaren Hiller introduced him to the work of Max Mathews on digital sound synthesis and gave him the computer programme codes that then enabled him to start his own work in this field. Censorship was omnipresent and any avant-garde cultural movement was banned; tanks surrounded the university and Horacio Vaggione could no longer work.

In a letter, Luis de Vaghione then proposed, in Spain, the vagfione of an electro-acoustic studio financed by a patron and encouraged the composer to join him.

In he settled in Madrid, spending four years in Spain. Horacip worked at perfecting a system of sound synthesis and composed his first digital works.

Modelos de universo III represents his earliest experiments with granulation and digital micromontage. In he presented a doctoral thesis entitled Poly-phonies: He subsequently taught in this department, was appointed teaching head of the electro-acoustic studio, then manager of the SIM computer music system, a research laboratory that later became the CICM research centre for computing and music creationof which he became director in All show the same approach: His music is characterised by lively, often violent colours, but also by subtle relationships that are set up between the acoustic instruments and the recorded or computer-generated part Thema for bass saxophone and tape-computer,through the exploration of the meaning of the material used and its potential, as well as on the symbolic significance of the musical figures Septuor for electronic ensemble, The composer has specialised in micromontage, granular synthesis, as well as micro-sounds and microtemporality Nodal; Arenas For Horacio Vaggione, composing is equivalent to the generation of veritable, unique events and their articulation within ever greater ensembles without the meaning of this unicity being lost.


He considers that every sound object is a musical object and lies within the domain of the composable; he likes to take sound objects produced hiracio acoustic instruments and transform them: Ash is an example of this, using the Syter process of the GRM; similarly, Points critiques is based on the sounds of a snare drum rubbing, bouncing, multiphonics transformed by a whole range of software.

His works bridge the chasm between sound and structure by developing a multi-scaled temporal approach, achieved through networks of objects conceived as polyvalent symbolic entities.
