Spectral music—by composers that include Tristan Murial, Peter Eötvös, and others—heavily involves computer-aided manipulation and mathematical generation of music. Spectralism developed in the 1970s, in large part because of the Institute for Research and Coordination of Acoustic Music (IRCAM) in Paris, the Ensemble L’Itinéraire.
