Aux origines des “nouvelles technologies musicales” : virtuosités et archétypes


Monday 28 August 2006, by Pierre Couprie

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

The author develops three ideas to try and understand the role of new technologies in music research: 1. the first state (musical crisis, electrical emergence, radio, electronics and computers, and scientific evolution), 2. the aid of the computer in virtuosity research (the computer surpasses the musician) and 3. two sonic archetypes (vocal and percussion) used to explain the sound of electroacoustic music. To conclude, he evokes projects of the new music research studio (1930) by Edgard Varèse as a prefiguration of current studios.
