GMEA

Main Missions

Aims

To create and produce new works. To distribute the contemporary music repertoire. The applied research and the development of new instrument-making and digital music devices. The professional and higher education training. The continuation of its work in applying electroacoustic practices to serve a study of listening, as a complement to musical education. To raise the public awareness by investing in the fields of action and cultural development, in liaison with the diversity of cultural players implanted in the region and through the creations and productions being carried out by the centre. To preserve collections (digitisation), instrument-making and more generally studio equipment needed for the interpretation of the contemporary repertoire. To function as a structural pole in contemporary musical creation: promotion, public awareness raising, constitution of partnerships, resource centre, etc. The GMEA (Albi Electroaccoustic Music Group) started its activities in 1977. It became professional in 1981. Thierry Besche, co-founder of the group, still is the current director.
