Interpretation master classes

The interpretation master classes associate the 20th century repertoire with recent creations with the desire to go beyond historical specializations. They offer special access to certain reference works in the mixed music repertoire where the dimension of sound projection is an integral part of the performance.

In Vivo Danse - Camping

Le Centre national de la danse and IRCAM have come together to offer a new workshop—In Vivo Danse-Camping—a laboratory in which several disciplines come together for collective experiments: musicians, performers, dancers.

Playground & Entrelacs. This workshop is imagined and led by the composer Michelle Agnès Magalhaes and the choreographer Hervé Robbe. The name of this workshop also could have been given to the scenographic and sonic systems offered like a playground for multiple experiments with danced and musical gestures. A tangible exploration of listening, of dialogues, impacts, interferences, and possible combinations between dance and music. A space conducive to the invention of visual and sound scores that are embodied and resonate via the presence of 17 artists from the world of choreography and the 4 musicians from 2e2m.

Mixed Music workshop

For two weeks, 3 computer music computer music design students will benefit from intensive, hands-on training on the performance of electroacoustic music. Supervised by the IRCAM teaching team, classes and workshops will be held in a specially equipped classroom and our studios. Teaching will continue during rehearsals for the concert in which they will perform the electroacoustic parts of works from the mixed music repertoire.

The performance of the works on the program requires not only the virtuosity of the musicians, but also the mastery of all the technology present—from the microphone to the sound diffusion­—including the computer programs that transform the sound. Participants must learn to balance the electronic and instrumental sections and to diffuse the musical figures in the concert hall in a comprehensible manner, each work offers challenging aspects from both a musical and technical point of view.

This concert is the result of two collaborations. The first is with the with the Pôle Sup'93 for the mixed music course, an educational program intended for young musicians who want to learn to perform with electronics.

The second collaboration is with the ENS Louis Lumière.  A group of 6 sound engineering students from the ENS Louis-Lumière will participate in a 2-week workshop on learning and mastering the audio recording of mixed music works through work sessions on dedicated software, recording and editing sessions in the studio and the recording of the concert in several formats: stereo, multichannel, and binaural.

The 3 student computer music designers selected in January 2020 for the June 2020 workshop that was cancelled due to the international health crisis: Francesco Di Maggio (Italy), Ivan Ferrer-Orozco (Mexico), Hibiki Mukai (Japan).
