AllMusic Review by

A short and sweetly humorous feuilleton (or bob-bon as the case may be) by the composer who led early French work on composing with environmental, extra-musical sounds or "musique concrete"...resulting in his "Concert de Bruits" (Concert of Noises) broadcast in 1948 and the establishment in 1951 of The Groupe de Recherches de Musique Concrete, and in 1958 The Group for Musical Research of the Office of French Radio-Television (O.R.T.F.). "Musique concrete" now also includes electronic and world music.
