Musique Concrète Revisited

2002

Music of the Twentieth-Century Avant-Garde: a Biocritical
Sourcebook. Westport and London: Greenwood: 432-45

In this article, the author presents a reassessment of musique concrète, comprising historical contextualisation, critical synopsis, and interpretation of Schaeffer’s
trajectory, from Études de bruits (1948) to Traité des objets musicaux (1966). Pierre Henry’s Variations pour une porte et un soupir (1963) are also presented as emblematic of the concrete procedure.
