The fourth volume of seven published
from 2001 to 2011, curated, noted and edited
by Guy Marc Hinant.

We keep going on our adventure with this fourth volume of our anthology. This installment is the pivoting axis of a seven-piece set. We developpe here some other tendancies includings new creations from China, Brazil, Norway, Hungary and of course some classics and (un)published material from main composers (Ligeti, Lucier...). Some very rare documents too such as Robert Wyatt + François Bayle. More than 3/4 of the tracks are unpublished.

In the previous three anthologies, we mentioned the historical axes at the heart of the advent of concrete and electronic music: Pierre Schaeffer's workshop studio (in Vol. 1), the WDR Studio in Cologne (Vol. 3) and the Princeton Electronic Music Center in Columbia, New York (Vol. 2). Quickly though, the development and creation of electronic studios became a priority, with new facilities popping up around the world: throughout Europe and America, but also in Brazil, Mexico and Japan, countries where there was a will to create music that was radically new. As important as it was, the technological wave was not big enough, as Tod Dockstader's case testifies: because of his technician's background in sound editing, he was prevented from pursuing his art in the studios, which remained the musicians' turf.
