The Collegium Musicae Residency at IRCAM

This research-creation residency is an integral part of the Collegium Musicae's Analysis/Creation research as well as a part of the symposium When the Guitar Electrifies (Itself)! dedicated to an instrument that represents one of the major musical revolutions of the 20th century.

In partnership with IRCAM (Research/Creation Interface department), the Collegium Musicae has commissioned a work from the Tomas Bordalejo, composed and performed in close collaboration with the guitarist Christelle Séry. The world premiere of this work will be on June 24, 2016 at the Philharmonie de Paris. This work will represent six months of research-creation on a SmartInstruments guitar in the IRCAM studios in collaboration with Adrien Mamou-Mani and the Instrumental Acoustics team. This guitar is a combination of an acoustic and an electric guitar, a sort of "third instrument" with specific particularities and playing styles, both pre-existing and created during the residency.
