Reception and Instructors

The training sessions take place at IRCAM from 10am to 1pm and from 2:30pm to 5:30pm in a classroom equipped with 11 recent Mac computers with all the necessary software installed for the training course, headphones, and MIDI keyboards. Depending on the needs of each course, other spaces may be made available to the participants, notably studios with all the technical and sound equipment necessary for the course to run smoothly.

Classes are taught by instructors specialized in teaching music creation software developed at IRCAM: Simone Conforti, Jean Lochard, Grégoire Lorieux, Mikhail Malt, Sébastien Naves (IRCAM teaching team), IRCAM researchers and engineers (Musical Representations team, Perception and Sound Design team, Sound Music Movement Interaction team), as well as invited guest speakers.

Educational Resources

Training format: the training sessions alternate between theoretical presentations, the study of examples to be analyzed, and practical hands-on work.
Teaching aids: video-projected presentations as well as paper and pdf course materials. Additional materials will be provided as needed.

Assessment and evaluation

Reception on the first day of the training from 9:45 am.
Attendance is monitored by signing an attendance sheet for each half-day.
Evaluations may be carried out on an ongoing basis or at the end of the course.
Delivery of a certificate of completion of the training and the results of the evaluations are provided at the end of the training.

Online Training

Information on how to connect to our training platform and instructions to follow online courses will be sent directly to each participant.
The date for a technical session held before the training program will be indicated on the class confirmation.
We ask that students download the software necessary for the class in order to get the most out of their training program. We recommend using two screens for these programs.
