MaMuPhi Seminar

Sat 18 November 2017,
10 a.m.- 6 p.m.
salle Stravinsky

Free entry

How does music resonate with other schools of thought? With languages and poetry (Babel), with mathematics and philosophy (Mamuphi), with politics and psychoanalysis (Entretemps)?
One Saturday per month—8 Saturdays total from 10am to 6pm in IRCAM's Stravinsky room—different types of associations will be brought together.

This session (in French) is dedicated to popular music.

Live stream the conference on Saturday, November 18 at 10am
