Musique Concrète

On Discogs
Overview / Releases / Marketplace

Very early electronic music that used tapes, tubes, transistors and other electronic equipment to make music.

Nowadays, Musique concrète uses natural sounds (from field recordings for instance), often heavily treated, and/or pure electronic sounds (analog / digital synthesis) in abstract compositions, mostly without melody and rhythm.

Used on Discogs for different kinds of music, not only the actual musique concrète: early electronic music as pioneered by Stockhausen, electroacoustic / acousmatic music, tape music and other kinds of electronic academic music. Can also be used for field recordings and other soundscapes.
