Audio MP3

The Musique.laclasse CD was the result of numerous workshops Lionel Marchetti conducted in schools with children from 12 to 16 years old. The composer helped the kids record source material then process it themselves with effects and montage. The 2007 CD was a selection of some musique concrète tracks and was meant to be played on shuffle mode with the silent tracks popping up here and there. Some of Marchetti’s own technique would spring up occasionally but with a fresh and naive take on musique concrète.

I was told of the Musique.laclasse CD, but was unable to find out how to purchase it or even if it was still available, so I set out to create my own version which is what you can hear above. I have no idea if mine is even close to the original, but it’s not really intended to be – just a fun exploration of the soundfiles made available from the site. It was done in one uninterrupted 50 minute take.
