In 1969 Georges Pompidou initiated the establishment of the Institut de Recherche et Coordination Acoustique/Musique (Institute for music/acoustic research and coordination) entrusting its direction to the composer and conductor Pierre Boulez. IRCAM became, and remains today, the only center of its kind across the globe, dedicated to contemporary musical research and production and linked to the Centre Pompidou.
IRCAM provides a unique framework to welcome and coordinate various scientific ways of approaching music, including physics (acoustics, mechanics), signal processing, computer science, cognitive psychology and musicology. Activities are structured according to specific themes, entrusted to specialized teams. Each team assumes responsibility for all the work carried out within its domain: research, software development, contracts, collaborative projects, diffusion.
The personnel working within IRCAM’s Department of Research and Development (90 researchers, engineers, post-graduates, technicians and administration staff) under the direction of Hugues Vinet, are organized into to the following teams.
