The Treatise on Musical Objects is regarded as Pierre Schaeffer’s most important work on music and its relationship with technology. Schaeffer expands his earlier research in musique concrète to suggest a methodology of working with sounds based on his experiences in radio broadcasting and the recording studio. Drawing on acoustics, physics, and physiology, but also on philosophy and the relationship between subject and object, Schaeffer’s essay summarizes his theoretical and practical work in music composition. Translators Christine North and John Dack present an important book in the history of ideas in Europe that will resonate far beyond electroacoustic music.

Most books on instrument making dedicate all of one or two pages about matters relating to sound. This treatise focuses, above all else, on how to think about sound just as the most famous musical instrument makers did during the "golden age of sound" between 1450 and 1840. You will be introduced to the hidden knowledge--13 acoustical principles--of what to do to enhance sound while making a musical instrument. These principles can be applied to any type of musical instrument in order to build sounds of extraordinary beauty.
