Within the concrete group of 1953, composers and researchers were able to find common ground in the choice --- deliberate in the researcher's case, circumstantial in the composer's --- of a particular material.
Schaeffer did not abandon the term 'experimental music', but it lost its syncretic connotations; and the term 'concrete music' was in turn dissociated from the technical procedures of concrete music and thus reappeared in Schaeffer's later writing with a more comprehensive meaning.
