French composer Pierre Henry, who helped pioneer the musique concrète genre of electronic music, has died at the age of 89.
Musique concrète is a compositional approach that treats recorded sounds as ‘concrete’ elements to be chopped, manipulated and arranged – originally on audio tape – to create music.
Henry was a classically trained musician, studying at the Paris Conservatoire between 1938 & 1948.
