Pierre Schaeffera€™s In Search of a Concrete Music (A€ la recherche da€™une musique concrAute) has long been considered a classic text in electroacoustic music and sound recording. Now Schaeffera€™s pioneering work--at once a journal of his experiments in sound composition and a treatise on the raison da€™Aotre of qconcrete musica€--is available for the first time in English translation. Schaeffera€™s theories have had a profound influence on composers working with technology. However, they extend beyond the confines of the studio and are applicable to many areas of contemporary musical thought, such as defining an 'instrumenta€™ and classifying sounds. Schaeffer has also become increasingly relevant to DJs and hip-hop producers as well as sound-based media artists. This unique book is essential for anyone interested in contemporary musicology or media history.aquot; In this book Schaeffer has unveiled the major philosophical problems of music of the second half of the twentieth century. An excellent translation by Dack and North.
