Jean-Claude Risset (b 1938) is a French composer of electronic music. Arriving at Bell Labs in 1964, he used Max Mathew's MUSIC IV software to digitally recreate the sounds of brass instruments. He made digital recordings of trumpets and then studied their timbral composition using "pitch-synchronous" spectrum analysis tools, revealing that the harmonics of these instruments would differ greatly depending on pitch, duration and loudness. From 1975-79, he became IRCAM's computer music director and worked in close collaboration with the likes of Pierre Boulez.
