Free entry, reservations required (Mid-september)

Composers and researchers invite you to the prototype factory under the place Stravinsky. Elaborating samples for sound design, creating and modifying voices, manipulating web audio technology and sound descriptors, disturbing the perception of sound in space, testing new instruments: artists and engineers work live in studio 5.

Presented live for the general public: artists, IRCAM’s technological arsenal and scientific subjects.

The first installment of this new series of events “Studio 5, en direct” will look at the singing and speaking voice.

Transformations in real-time, synthesized voices, augmented vocality... Discover the latest innovations from IRCAM in digital voice technology and their applications for live performances, music, film, and more.

This day includes science and technology conferences and an interactive installation you can test! The “Choeur virtuel”, literally a virtual choir, rounds out this invitation to studio 5.
