Career Discovery Visit

Meet an IRCAM Professional and Visit the Institute

Intended for high school and college students, these encounters provide personalized access to IRCAM’s specificities, through the presentation of the professional possibilities at the junction of artistic creation and scientific research.


The encounter begins with a visit led by one of IRCAM’s guides during which participants discover the history of the institute, its architecture, and the different fields of activity. Students discover the anechoic chamber.

The visit is followed by a conference given by a professional from IRCAM whose domain has been chosen by the teacher: artistic creation, scientific research, sound…. Students discover the speaker’s professional career and their profession, addressing notions such as contemporary composition, tools for computer music, acoustic spaces, sound engineering, etc.
