Re: Schaeffer translation
Solfege des objets sonores - the booklet of this 3 CD set has the
English and Spanish in the "bilangue" style (French on the left page
language on the right page). The ina people, who published the solfege,
is no English translation of TOM yet.

surprised) to learn that an English translation is now available.
Of related interest: Michel Chion also published a valuable little
book titled Guide des objets sonores, dedicated to Schaeffer, his

i vaguely remember having seen a translation of the "Traité des
Objets Musicaux" available in english somewhere, but sorry, i can't
find any good pointer on the internet.
with the help of Leonardo search engine, you will find quite a few
potentially interesting references :
otherwise i would recommend the "Solfège" which comes with a 3 CD set
of examples and explanations given by Schaeffer.
still, in French...

in music psychology and music education. i would appreciate if you
could send me any information you have about Pierre Scheffer's Sound
Objects. Thanks a lot.
