Nuit sonore #5

The Centre Pompidou is invaded by sound waves for the Soirée Sonore
Thu 17 May 2018,
7 p.m.- 11 p.m.
Centre Pompidou
Musée national d'art moderne

Free entry, limited seats available.



For the 5th edition of Soirée Sonore, meet the Interaction Sound Music Movement team from IRCAM-STMS with Coloop by Nodesign. The ghetto blaster of the 21st century, come dance, compose, and play together using your smartphone that will suddenly become a musical instrument.

Stemming from the CoSiMa project (ANR), Coloop is part of a powerful movement that, over the past decade, has been a witness to the evolution of both the media and instruments in their relationship to users and their environment, with the emergence of tangible interfaces, augmented reality, and ambient Internet. Its objective is to explore that new relationship via novel interfaces and tools for collaborative creation based on the latest mobile and Web technologies.

Non-stop from 7 to 10pm.
Musée, niveau 5

Square - Sonic Promenade

Reality meets electronic fiction in your headphones, altering the perception of a place. Square is an augmented audio visit of a venue, a street, a neighborhood, a museum. A surprising sonic promenade, interactive and holophonic, during which the real and the possible come together, imagined by the composer Lorenzo Bianchi Hoesch. You’ll never see the museum’s alleys, views, terraces the same way again.

Square is the result of Lorenzo Bianchi Hoesch’s residency in artistic research with the Interaction Sound Music Movement team at IRCAM-STMS.

David Poirier-Quinot, Olivier Warusfel (Acoustic and Cognitive Spaces team at IRCAM-STMS), Norbert Schnell, Benjamin Matuszewski (Interaction Sound Music Movement team at IRCAM-STMS) IRCAM scientific advisors

Bewitch of let yourself be bewitched with the new sound installation by Pierre Lecomte, featuring a composition by Théo Radakovitch. This installation invites you to take control of another visitor’s ears, perhaps even hypnotizing them. Théo Radakovitch followed the program DNSEP Design sonore at the École supérieure d'art et de design Tours-Angers-Le Mans, in collaboration with IRCAM.
