Abstract We will analyse the plan that began to be drawn in Duchamp’s work between 1911 and 1915 and that will go through all his life – “La musique avant toute chose” (Verlaine). Plan of music composition that according to his words open to a new way of creation. Our research is based on Sonate, Erratum Musical, Musical Sculpture and À bruit secret (Hidden Noise). We will try to show how the new way of composing of Duchamp accompanies and leads to the idea of the ready-made (sonorous ready-made). On the other hand, we will see how, by introducing chance and eliminating interpretation, Duchamp’s new conception of composition will influence the music of the second half of the twentieth century.
