  • Biography/Historical Note

    Pierre Schaeffer was the first composer to create music by using magnetic tape. His musical experimentation resulted in him publishing À la Recherche d'une Musique Concrète (French for "In Search of a Concrete Music") in 1952, which was a summation of his working methods up to that point.
