Due to the current international health crisis and in keeping with the latest measures announced by the French President, we are unable to maintain ManiFeste-2020, both the festival and the academy, which was originally scheduled to take place from June 3 to 28. More info on this page.

Composers, musicians, musicologists, teachers, scientists… Every year, the academy attracts numerous auditors who attend workshop and master class rehearsals and take part in a series of associated events.

Special access to the IRCAM multi-media library
Free entry to the final workshop and master class presentations

Registration fees: 200€

These fees cover the entire academy(June 15—27, 2020), even if the auditor does not take part in all the academy events.
