Groupe de Recherches Musicales

Founded in 1958 by Pierre Schaffer from the Groupe de Recherches de Musique Concrète (GRMC), the Groupe de Recherches Musicales (GRM) represents one among several theoretical and at the same time experimental working groups that comprised part of the French radio’s “Service de la Recherche” from 1960. Still based in Paris and part of the Institut National de l’Audiovisuel (INA) since 1975, GRM is dedicated to preserving and promoting the cultural heritage of sound.

Numerous composers who have been influential for musique concrète are associated with the group, including Pierre Henry, Pierre Schaeffer, Éliane Radigue, François Bayle, Guy Reibel, Bernard Parmegiani, Luc Ferrari, Beatriz Ferreyra and Ivo Malec.
