De la machine √ l’oreille. Le paradoxe de la musique concr√®te


Wednesday 27 July 2005, by Pierre Couprie

All the versions of this article: [English] [français]

The author discusses three sources of musique concr√®te. The French poet Guillaume Apollinaire used the phonograph to create a new form of sound poetry, the phonograph was the origin of Schaeffer’s discoveries. Filippo Tomasso Marinetti’s “radia” was intended to create art using sounds from the real world. Electronic instruments developed since the Theremin in 1920 signal a reinvention of the musical instrument. Pierre Schaeffer and Jacques Poullin were the inventers behind new electroacoustic devices (e.g. the phonog√®ne); they also were responsible for the introduction of new music research.
