Perhaps you already have this on your list, but I have found "Locating East Asia in Western Art Music", edited by Everett and Lau (Wesleyan Univ. Press 2004), to be quite fascinating and useful in this discussion.

Subject: [Smt-talk] Theory of "Intercultural" Composition

Dear Collective Wisdom

could you help me with references to any (comprehensive / seminal / detailed) (theoretical/ aesthetical/ analytical/ overview) publications in English or French
about contemporary (trans-/cross-/inter-/poly-/cultural) composition that one must not be unaware of if thinking about the subject...

I mean western art music composers such as Tan Dun, Frank Denyer, Takahashi Yuji, Isang Yun, Liza Lim, Samir Odeh-Tamimi, Jean-Claude Eloy, Mochizuki Misato , Hosokawa Toshio, Guo Wenjing, Xu Shuya, Jin Hi Kim, Chen Xiaoyong, Younghi-Pagh Paan, Claude Vivier, Klaus Huber, Karlheinz Stockhausen, etc. - a wide selection but I hope you get the drift.
Publications after 2000 are preferred.

I will give some lectures and analysis seminars this summer, and I already have a small reading list, but as I am not a theoretician myself, and not really well versed in the anglophone discourse (being more of German extraction) I may have overlooked some essential reading.

Thankful for any hint. Names of composer you consider seminal and who do not appear in the list above are also welcome, if possible with contacts or publishers.
