About IRCAM’s Residency

There will be three parts to this residency, public concerts, public demonstrations, and small group hands on sessions. The events are all open to anyone interested; however, for the small group sessions, the application process is over.
Since space is limited for all activities, it is asked of you that you RSVP so BUCNM can get you on the mailing list and keep you informed of any changes.

About IRCAM

France’s IRCAM (Institute of Research and Coordination in Acoustics/Music) has been a world leader at producing and performing works for ensembles and electronics for over three decades. Their work has completely redefined the way computers and performers work together in concert, creating both amazing new sounds and unprecedented degrees of interaction and coordination. This kind of work is not easily portable, and so IRCAM’s researchers and work have only rarely come to America.
