François Bayle

Biography

Born: April 27, 1932; Tamatave, Madagascar  
Bayle studied with Stockhausen and Messiaen. He joined the ORTF Groupe de Musique Concrète in 1960 and was influenced by Schaeffer. He later led the group when it became the Groupe de Recherches Musicales in 1966. Most of his compositions are electronic, and his first important work, =Espaces inhabitables= (1967) is suggestive of an imaginary world in which nature is distorted in a dream-like fashion. He later utilized natural and synthetic Read more sounds in his compositions, such as the recorded sounds made in a Lebanese cave. Bayle summarizes his ideas about sound and its effect on the listener in the ten hour work =L'expérience acoustique.= He has stated that his purpose as a composer is to enable the listener to feel the motion and vibration of energy in the universe.
