Definition of concretism in English:
The theory or practice of concrete poetry, in which the visual arrangement of words in patterns or forms on the page takes precedence over the semantic or phonetic elements involved.
- In musical concretism, a material or concrete sound is one which reveals its affinity to the source of the sound.
- Thus an indeterminate composition approaches greater concretism by allowing nature to complete its form in its own course.
- The idea here was to avoid doing what the visual poem up till concretism had always done: make the visual follow on from the verbal.
