Publish date

On March 7, 2007, for the 30th anniversary of the Centre Pompidou, Jean-Pierre Derrien and Pierre Boulez revisited the creation of IRCAM: from the conception of the project until the opening of IRCAM.

Using visual supports and photos, the speakers let us take a look at political and cultural issues of the 1970s, at the discovery of the special architecture of the building and the espace de projection, at the programming of concerts held during the Passage du XXe siècle (Sons dessus dessous #6), at reflection and musical research at IRCAM, and at the discovery of common points between scientists and composers.
