Back to the Timeline ULYSSES Journeys


06/2024 Ircam – FR

ULYSSES Journeys offer young composers and performers the opportunity to take part in courses, workshops and residencies, but also to have concrete working experiences, through commissions and concerts.

In 2024, IRCAM offers a Collaboratory “Cine-concert – Percussion and electronics” workshop with teaching team Martin Matalon (composer), Eric Sleichim (BL!NDMAN artistic director), Serge Lemouton & João Svidzinski (IRCAM computer music designers).

Composer Martin Matalon and the BL!NDMAN [drums] collective are offering six young composers a cinema-concert workshop, in which they will create original scores for silent comedy films. Several composers will be able to share the musical setting of the same medium-length film. Others may propose different compositions for the same short film.

This year, Natalia Laguens Getino, Ján Števuliak and Krõõt-Kärt Kaev will participate in the Cine-concert workshop as part of their ULYSSES Journeys.


Stage 1 – December 2023 – April 2024: Online masterclasses with Martin Matalon
