Notes & Reviews:
In the fifties, Pierre Henry provoked a scandal by inventing Musique Concrete with Pierre Schaeffer. Music was no longer written with notes on a score for instrumentalists but was based on sounds and noises from our environment, collected, edited and transformed by machines. In 'Pierre Henry The Art of Sounds', we follow him as he brandishes his boom on which two microphones are mounted in search of a sound in the Coulee Verte, in Paris. As the journey unfolds we are brought forty years back to Bordeaux where people are leaving the "Concert couche" ("lying down concert") with reactions from the audience.Notes & Reviews:
