Anecdotal Composition

Genres and Categories [G&C]  ]

Name given to the genre within electroacoustic music that employs recognisable sounds more for their ’anecdotic’ or narrative aspect than for their abstract potential. The first piece to be named thus ("Hétérozygote" by Luc Ferrari) was not the first anecdotic work. It was preceded by many of Schaeffer’s compositions and the music of other composers.
