François Bayle has been at the forefront of acousmatic music for over 40 years. In 1958-60, François Bayle joined Pierre Schaeffer’s Groupe de Recherches Musicales in Paris, and between 1959-62 worked with Olivier Messiaen and Karlheinz Stockhausen. In 1966, Pierre Schaeffer put him in charge of the GRM which, in 1975, became an integral department of the French National Audiovisual Institute (INA). He maintained this position until 1997.In addition, it was François Bayle’s idea to create the Acousmonium (1974).
Upon leaving the Grm in 1997, he created his own studio and the record label Magison.
