The history of musique concrète
« on: July 04, 2017, 01:27:41 PM »
I saw this fantastic article shared by IRCAM on facebook. I thought it would be really useful here in the beginners' forum should anyone be interested in finding out the history of this amazing way of creating music.

It was an interesting article thank you, but I see the music as worth listening to on its own terms, not just as a historical curiosity that only led to "something of real musical and social importance" when people learned to sample snippets of sound and set them to a beat. This 11 page article with embedded YouTube videos perhaps gives a better idea of Pierre Schaeffer's work -
