Images of a Work Collection
Since 2007, IRCAM’s Department of Education and Cultural Outreach has presented one or two films a year on a work in production with electronics produced in the institute’s studios. The series is produced in collaboration with the Centre Pompidou. The films are screened before the work’s premiere and are accompanied by a meeting with the composer and film crew.
Examining the different steps in creating a piece, watching a composer at work, understanding the sources and issues surrounding recent creations produced at IRCAM: these are the subjects of the “Images of a Work” series. It decodes the creative process of a musical work and lets us in to the inner workings of IRCAM. It shows the involvement of different actors (composer, musicians, computer music designers, scientists, ect.) in the elaboration of a musical project and their various work situations (personal studio, research period, tests, recordings, rehearsals with musicians and other artists, etc.)
This collection sheds light on the aesthetic, technological, and scientific aspects of a work in progress. The films are part of a global educational effort that accompanies the audience, the listener, in their understanding of a musical work and how the technology and research developed at IRCAM serve an artistic project.
