Atmosphères was first performed in Donaueschingen in October 1961. The conductor was Hans Rosbaud. It, too, is based on micropolyphonic textures, but in an even more radical form: the piece contains absolutely no rhythmic or melodic motif, its form consisting exclusively of transformations of tone colour and dynamics.
