Who Are We?

"Our mission is to be a laboratory for artists and a workshop for scientists of the 21st century; to combine new creations with the repertoire, sensation with knowledge, prototypes with the generic. Open to the world and to our times, on the lookout, and always one step ahead." Frank Madlener, director of IRCAM

Multidisciplinary in essence, IRCAM is involved in the interaction among scientific research, technological innovation, and musical creation. It brings together a broad range of personalities and professions at the crossroads of research and computer-science development, artistic production and sound engineering, the coordination and implementation of artistic projects, education and documentation… without forgetting, of course, all the support and administrative functions which play an essential role in the realization of our projects.
