A season of returns.
Beyond our walls and mobilized by emerging creation; outdoors, blossoming in Royaumont with the vocal creation by Sivan Eldar; in situ for the vibrant, sonic journey by the artist Tomas Saraceno, guest of honor at the Palais de Tokyo.

IRCAM’s 18-19 season inaugurates a festive weekend in April, “Intégrale”, imagined with La Scala Paris: a pianotastic, visionary, ecstatic adventure of Scriabine meets the contemporary and electronic keyboard. A young generation of invited pianists has now gone beyond all traditional specializations and separations.

A season of living, programming, duplicating, making, and altering: the Forum Vertigo and the exposition “La Fabrique du vivant” at the Centre Pompidou that includes Jean-Luc Hervé’s audio biotopia, are the unmissable events of Spring 2019. A raw season, seen in the “Studio 5, Live” events that let the public see what’s going on in IRCAM’s studios and labs.

Spread out throughout France and abroad: Athens, Cologne, Donaueschingen, Frankfort, Hamburg, Lisbon, Madrid, Stockholm, Venice… IRCAM’s new season has chosen its look and its rhythm: nowhere else, and everywhere.
