Creation & Artistic Research

IRCAM is an internationally recognized research center dedicated to creating new technologies for music. The institute offers a unique experimental environment where composers strive to enlarge their musical experience through the concepts expressed in new technologies.

In 2009, IRCAM instigated a artistic research residency open to professionals in the fields of computer music and sound.

The results of artistic research projects are disseminated via publications by the UMR and STMS Wednesday Seminars. These are the fruit of interactions between new musical ideas and the scientific teams' domains of investigation.
