New instruments, new repertories, new pedagogies

Nouveaux instruments, nouveaux répertoires, nouvelles pédagogies

Coordination Hugues Genevois and Serge de Laubier

The 20th century saw the birth of new families of musical instruments: electronic, electro-mechanical, digital… and even mechanical!
Some of these gave rise to new repertories, or led to a new look at works of the past. Others were intimately linked to their creator, or to the production of one particular work, without consequences for a repertory. Whereas new musical practices arose with, notably, the emergence of orchestras comprising digital or electro-acoustic instruments, we shall attempt to identify and outline the repertories and pedagogies that are linked to them.
