Pierre Schaeffer In Search of a Concrete Music
In Search of Concrete Music by the electronic music pioneer Pierre Schaeffer is one of the most important classical texts on electroacoustic music, sound recording, and composition, now for the first time in history available in English. The book contains both Scheffer’s documentation of his experiments in composition, and a theoretical backbone of the overall importance and purpose of musique concrete. Being one of the most well known, and influential figures in music history, Schaeffer’s impact on music and sound-based art stretches way beyond the realm of electroacoustic composition. His ideas and methods had and continue to have a tremendous influence on many artists across the field, spanning from classical avant-garde to hip-hop, and DJ culture. This book is essential for anyone who has an interest in sound as a medium, as well as musicology, and media history.
