Artistic Research Residency

This year’s call for our artistic research residency is slightly delayed. Focus will be on pre-defined themes, which we look forward to sharing with you in the upcoming weeks.

This program offers artists from all disciplines the opportunity to collaborate with one or more IRCAM research teams, within the framework of a residency of 2 to 6 months, which may be extended in a partner center. These residencies aim to expand the field of music through the contribution of science and technology.

The benefits of the residency for the artists are multiple:

  • Take time to reflect on your artistic practice
  • Work with researchers to explore a new artistic research approach
  •  Develop or perfect an innovative creative tool
  • Conduct experimental artistic research
  • Produce a prototype of an artifact
  • Compose a sketch for a work or performance
  • Test a configuration, an immersive audio/video device

Winners are selected by the members of our international jury.

Composers, researchers, sound artists, etc. can apply.
