Re: Schaeffer translation

oups, sorry for this mistake how could i forget this ?
well, must be because i was so concentrated on Schaeffer's voice timbre :-)
anyway, it would be really nice to have at least some chapters of the TOM translated in English.
Livre IV and V for instance.
we have to wait ten years for this book to fall in public domain, leaves us some time...

is no English translation of TOM yet.

I began to work on a translation of Schaeffer's landmark treatise at McGill in the late 80s, but, with other fish to fry at the time, I set it aside and have never been able to return to it. Certainly no English translation existed at the time. I would be thrilled (but 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 mentor.

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...

best regards,

Dear Stefan,

thank you for mentioning Pierre Schaeffer. I also use his ideas about /sound objects/ and /reduced/ /listening/ in my courses both 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.

all the best,
