Back to the Timeline ULYSSES Journeys


01/2024 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, one ULYSSES-endorsed composer (tbc) will participate in the Collaboratory “Cine-concert – Percussion and electronics” workshop with teaching team Martin Matalon (composer), Eric Sleichim (BL!NDMAN artistic director), Serge Lemouton & NN (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.
