Music for Two Pierres Brian Schorn

Using Pierre Schaefer’s La Musique Concrète as a source text, two passages were selected describing the work of Schaeffer and his collaborator Pierre Henry. This original, French source text was used to generate a poetic translation based on visual associations. The musical material for the score was generated entirely from the original source text using letters, punctuation marks, table of contents and page numbers to determine pitch, dynamics, articulation, rhythm, etc.
