Collective Musicale Interactions and New Movements

Discover the Interaction Sound Music Movement team’s work on group interaction.

The availability and spread of networked and web-audio technologies has enabled novel musical possibilities from both artistic and scientific point of views. In this context, IRCAM develops since several years, new tools dedicated at exploring group interaction in musical experiences: from shared listening experiences to performances involving public participation using web audio technologies and nomad platforms (e.g. smartphones and tablets).
