This thesis proposes to present to the English-speaking reader the two successfully achieved stages of Schaeffer's 1966 solfège, namely typology and morphology, as expounded in Traité des objets musicaux, situating them in the larger context of Schaeffer's musicological work and in the specific context of the solfège. This is done through translation of and commentary on Schaeffer's writing.
