Misique Concrete: Henry, Schaeffer, Arthuys
Tonight on A ifferent Nature we'll be listening to an album called "Panorama of Musique Concrete", which includes works by Pierre Henry, Pierre Schaeffer, and Pillipe Arthuys.
These compositions include The Veil of Orpheus (Henry), the first "operatic"work of Musique Concrete, also an Instrumental Study for Mexican Flute, the first known recording of a Pre Hispanic instrument and electronics (1948).
Another Henry recording we'll be playing will be DIEU, Musical Scenes Inspired by DIEU, by Victor Hugo (1978).
