From the mouth to the ear

Pierre Schaeffer, Michel Chion, Lionel Marchetti: three voices of “musiques concrètes”

Christoph Haffter
The story of “musique concrète” is not yet over. After Pierre Schaeffer, his student Michel Chion went beyond the former’s maxims and led the project along new paths; Lionel Marchetti, after them, chafes against this music as had no one before him, articulating “musique concrète” anew once again. As always, this is not a straight history, but one full of bends and bifurcations.
