SUMMER INTENSIVE IN ELECTRO-ACOUSTIC MUSIC
Calendar Event: July 5, 2004 - July 30, 2004
CENTRE DE CREATION MUSICALE IANNIS XENAKIS (CCMIX)
SUMMER INTENSIVE IN ELECTRO-ACOUSTIC MUSIC: July 5th - July 30th, 2004
CCMIX, the electro-acoustic studios of Iannis Xenakis, offers a
month-long intensive course in electronic music and composition for
English speaking students or practitioners of electronic music. The
course takes place at CCMIX studios in Alfortville (Paris), France.
Group class sessions and individual creative work in the studios are
the heart of this program. Classes will be taught by Gerard Pape
(Director/composer, CCMIX, Columbia, U of Michigan, Ann Arbor),
Eduardo Miranda (researcher, professor of computer music, developer
of Chaosynth), Joel Chadabe (Bennington, NYU, Manhattan School of
Music, President, Electronic Music Foundation), Trevor Wishart
(composer, developer of Composer Desktop), and Agostino di Scipio
(KYMA). Assistance in individual studio work will be provided. All
classes and studio sessions conducted in English.
CCMIX maintains UPIC, KYMA and Pro-Tools studios as well as a wide
variety of software applications. The UPIC is the revolutionary
graphic composition/synthesis system created by Iannis Xenakis. CCMIX
is supported in part by the French Ministry of Culture and
Communication and by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Field trips will be provided to observe other aspects of the French
and European electronic music scene. In past years these have
included Pierre Schaeffer's Groupe de Recherches Musicales (GRM) at
Radio France; IRCAM at the Pompidou Centre; a Stockhausen electronic
music performance in Amsterdam; Robert Ashley's "Dust," and other
studio groups or individuals working at the classic or cutting edge.
Students will be housed near the CCMIX studios. Central Paris
attractions are nearby.
Class enrollment is limited.
