This is probably one of the more obscure music styles, and some of you may not even consider it as a style of music. Music or not music, it is a form of art that I am interested in making.
I am a rock musician and only know very few good examples of avant-garde music and musique concrète, such as The Beatles’ Revolution 9. My brother and I both like how this kind of music sounds, and after having played music with more convenient instruments for over a decade, we’ve been wanting to try things with tape recorders and sound samples instead. Note that, as my brother said, we are not looking to create bad music and call it avant-garde; we want to make actual, half-decent musique concrète (or at least have a good time trying). Specifically we want to compose and record music, but later on we may also want to try performing it live.
Are there any good tips on how to start out completely from scratch? The do’s and don’ts, maybe even some articles that take you by the hand and guide you through the steps of creating a concept and successfully conveying that through musique concrète… anything that could be helpful to a musician who is completely uneducated about this kind of music.
