Ircam Coordinates Innovative ECMCT European Course For Musical Composition And Technologies

United States
31st January 2007 — Organized within the framework of the Leonardo Da Vinci programme - the European programme for vocational education and training, a trans-European partnership of six institutions presents the European Course for Musical Composition and Technologies (ECMCT). The ECMCT is coordinated by IRCAM (Institut de Recherche et Coordination Acoustique/Musique, Paris).

The ECMCT is an innovative one-year course specially devised for sound artists, composers, musicians and visual artists with musical skills and interests. Students will have the unique opportunity to choose between two different teaching tracks, each consisting of study at two different leading European institutions.

The innovative teaching program comprises: lectures by international artists and experts; thematic seminars; intensive hands-on workshops on software for studio work and composition (recording, sample editing and sequencing, real-time sound processing, sound spatialization, computer-assisted composition); master classes; video-conferences and production of the student’s own creative project.
