French Innovators Demo Music Interface
IRCAM presents MusicLab, a music-teaching application, in conjunction with the Maine Laptop Initiative


21-29 SEPTEMBER 2006. Representatives of IRCAM, one of the world's premiere institutes for the art and science of electronic music, present MusicLab in conjunction with the Maine Laptop Initiative. IRCAM researchers will meet with New Media students to demo these music-teaching applications and discuss the state of electronic music today.

Each of the first five applications explores a specific field of sound design, relying on present and past musical language (pitch, intensity, duration, rhythm, beat, colour, etc.). The sixth application is dedicated to editing together tracks created in the other applications.

These programs can all together be used as discovery and understanding tools of specific processes of music creation as well as workshops of invention and elaboration of sound.

Used by the teacher, it is an original experimentation and demonstration tool; used by a student, it offers discovery trails of the basic sound language while allowing music creation in a perfectly controlled context at every moment.

IRCAM (Institut de Recherche et Coordination Acoustique/Musique) is one of the most important European institutes for the science and art of music. Associated with the Centre Pompidou in Paris, IRCAM has a distinguished history of nourishing avant-garde artists as Pierre Boulez and contributing important music-making tools such as Max/MSP.

Researcher biographies
Olivier Lescurieux is Industrial Liaison Manager at IRCAM. He develops and promotes research activities, and has also been in charge of creating the Hypermedia Studio, dedicated to prototyping hypermusical authoring environments for music analysis and teaching.

Gregoire Lorieux studied Baroque and Renaissance repertoires at the Tours Music Conservatory, and has devoted years to music composition.


This event is organized by the New Media Department; for further information, please contact Mike Scott.
