Dripsody · Hugh Le Caine

“Hugh Le Caine was way before his time. The Canadian electronic music pioneer devoted his life to building synthesizers, creating new sounds, and composing in the musique concrète style. His seminal recording, “Dripsody,” which emulates and modifies the sound of a single drop of water, shines as a remarkable and fresh experiment. And it’s from 1955. That’s the same year Elvis Presley released his first #1 single and people were flipping their sh*t over the rise of rock n’ roll – the devil’s music. Imagine the utter chaos that would’ve ensued if anyone had heard this. People would have jumped past worrying about the devil to a full-on apocalyptic alien invasion.” – Noisey

Musique concrète, (French: ‘concrete music’), experimental technique of musical composition using recorded sounds as raw material. The technique was developed about 1948 by the French composer Pierre Schaeffer and his associates at the Studio d’Essai (‘Experimental Studio’) of the French radio system. The fundamental principle of musique concrète lies in the assemblage of various natural sounds recorded on tape (or, originally, on disks) to produce a montage of sound. During the preparation of such a composition, the sounds selected and recorded may be modified in any way desired—played backward, cut short or extended, subjected to echo-chamber effects, varied in pitch and intensity, and so on. The finished composition thus represents the combination of varied auditory experiences into an artistic unity…” – ENCYCLOPÆDIA BRITANNICA
