Musique Concrète

Working with Sound Directly

Working with sounds directly gives the composer much more control, and allows them to mould exactly how their piece will sound at the end. Unlike for Soundscape composition, composers of Musique Concrète are not interested in focusing on where sounds come from, but what they can turn them into. When creating works of Musique Concrète, composers tend to make many more transformations and use these to create many new sounds.
