Musiques-Fictions is the collection launched by IRCAM in 2020: a program where musical creation is in direct contact with literary fiction. These music-fictions combine a text—primarily by a contemporary author—original music linked to the senses of fiction, a director, and actors. Giving musical writing its full place but preserving the text's intelligibility: Musiques-Fictions intends to renew the genre of the radio fiction or Hörspiel by going beyond a simple sound illustration of a story or dialogue.

In an immersive space, under the ambisonic dome, where imagination is solicited by the sound environment created, the listener is invited to a shared listening experience.
