About Jean-Claude Risset
Jean-Claude Risset (March 18, 1938 in Le Puy, France) is a French composer of electronic music. He is a former student of André Jolivet and former coworker of Max Mathews at Bell Labs
Arriving at Bell Labs, New Jersey in 1964, he used 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
