Who is Pierre Schaeffer?

Perhaps best known for being dubbed, "the godfather of sampling," Pierre Schaeffer coined the term "musique concrete" and spent his life at the  Radiodiffusion Française where he founded the Groupe de Recherche de Musique Concrète. 

He was a philosopher, sound artist, teacher and innovator that left a legacy that is fairly unmatched. He even taught Jean Michel Jarre!!

Learn more about his groundbreaking composition in the video above! And once you are caught up, feel free to share other articles, videos or album links in the private group.

To get the full array of his influence, we are including his first piece ever recorded (above) - what is considered the first piece of musique concrete, as well as our favorite album of his, where he experimented with more "synthesizer" music, here below.
