This is a the first task from the Fundamentals of Electronic Music module. The task was to create a piece in the style of Musique Concrete using influences from artists such as Pierre Schaeffer. I have posted the audio for my piece as well as a screen shot of the all of the audio clips. The piece contains scraping guitar sounds, plucked harmonics, vinyl static and more, complete with cut and spliced audio samples as well as the use of looping, reversing and crossfading techniques.
Below this as well, is a piece by Schaeffer himself. It’s good to have an audio comparison!
