06/2018 Ircam – FR


This year, IRCAM would like a large number of young composers to take part in the exceptional environment offered by the ManiFeste academy in June (internationally renowned composers, exceptional musicians, scientists specialized in musical domains, etc.). The first year, students will follow individual and group classes, encounters, discussions, and work on compositional sketches.
