Education at IRCAM

A center for research and artistic creation, IRCAM is also a unique venue for learning and the transmission of practices. Discover our educational offer via concerts, films, sound installations. Meet composers, students, and musicians involved. Watch short, fun demonstrations of software developed at the institute.


Studio 2 | The DIRTI (Dirty Tangible Interfaces)

An interactive, playful, sonic system to test as a family

Gathered around independent, different-sized interactive boxes, children are invited to dig their hands into different materials that fill the boxes: feathers, tree bark, tapioca pearls. By manipulating the materials sound events are triggered, creating infinite individual or collective musical combinations.

Conception: Matthieu Savary - User Studio
Conseillers techniques Ircam-STMS : Grégoire Lorieux, Diemo Schwarz, Emmanuel Fléty
