About Pierre Schaeffer

Pierre Henri Marie Schaeffer (August 14, 1910 – August, 19 1995) was a French composer, writer, broadcaster, engineer, musicologist and acoustician. His innovative work in both the sciences—particularly communications and acoustics—and the various arts of music, literature and radio presentation after the end of World War II, as well as his anti-nuclear activism and cultural criticism garnered him widespread recognition in his lifetime.

Amongst the vast range of works and projects he undertook, Schaeffer is most widely and currently recognized for his accomplishments in electronic and experimental music, at the core of which stands his role as the chief developer of a unique and early form of avant-garde music known as musique concrète. The genre emerged in Europe from the utilization of new music technology developed in the post-war era, following the advance of electroacoustic and acousmatic music.

Just to understand correctly...  this lovely invitation says:

share their new or previously composed dedication


email your unpublished track

so, my question here -- must the recording be "unpublished" ?  Is a "previously composed" and previously published recording ok? 

Thanks for producing this project, Jack!
