Le vocabulaire de l’objet sonore

2001d

Du sonore au musical. Cinquante années de recherches concrète (1948-1998). Paris: L’harmattan: 203-225.

The author describes the model of the sound object, part of Schaeffer’s theory. He defines the sound object and the “objet convenable” and compares these with the difference between real sound models and the musical object. Then, he briefly introduces typo-morphological characterisation. The last part of this paper explains two concepts: sound event (R. Murray Schafer) and sound image (François Bayle) as extensions to the sound object concept.
