GRM (Musical Research Group)

The GRM was officially founded in 1958, as a new version of various earlier groups (Studio and Club d’Essai, Groupe de Recherche de Musique Concrète) that all shared the aims of experimenting and making music with recorded sounds.

This group was one of the most important centres for musical research and home to the musical style of Musique Concrète. The studios and expertise of the GRM helped many composers to create works and are still going strong today.

The GRM was originally led by Pierre Schaeffer.
