IRCAM

Main Missions

Aims

Ircam is active in all the fields linked to sound research (from fundamental research to industrial opportunities) and musical creation, for concerts or performing arts, thanks to seven research and development teams, a production department having set up some 97 concerts, operas and performances in 2011, and an education department which organises numerous training sessions. Today Ircam is one of the largest, publicly funded research centres in the world dedicated to musical creation and scientific research. A unique venue where art prospection and scientific and technological innovation converge, the institute has been directed by Frank Madlener since 2006, and comprises more than 160 collaborators. Ircam is developing its three major axes (creation, research and transmission) with a season in Paris, an annual festival and touring shows in France and abroad. A multidisciplinary academy of creation, (a first in France) set up by the festival that revealed it, was launched in June 2012.
