Pierre Schaeffer’s seminal account of how he created musique concrete while working for Radio France in the 50’s. An absolute must read for all those interested in this genre.

From a modern perspective, it is about the earliest attempts at sampling and sample manipulation, using wax cylinders first, and reel to reel tape recorders when they became available.
