Section: THE MAIN THEME
Abstract: The critical examination in this paper should point to a shift in a perspective in understanding musique concrète (concrete music) in relation to its historical evaluation, viewing it as a music of technology. The paper is based on the hypothesis that each technology in its materiality and functionality shapes the outcomes that arise from it, which is ultimately aimed at looking for the ‘human’ in the ‘composer-technology’ dichotomy. That is where the reshaping of the musical experience takes place. But it should be noted that the technology share will be questioned through only a few aspects of concrete music, which is why there is an open possibility for further research problems.
Keywords: musique concrète, technology, music of technology, electroacoustic music, Pierre Schaeffer, musical experience.
