The IRCAM, Institut de Recherche et Coordination Acoustique/Musique, was founded in the 1970s by Pierre Boulez. This Parisien institute is one of the most important European institutes for both science about music and sound and avant garde electro-acoustical art music. It is situated next to and organisatorically linked with Centre Pompidou.

There seems to be some misunderstandings about when exactly the IRCAM started to exist.

Georgina Born wrote her PhD thesis in anthropology about the IRCAM, which was later published under the title "Rationalizing Culture: IRCAM, Boulez, and the Institutionalization of the Musical Avant-Garde".
