Back to the Timeline ULYSSES Journeys


06/2023 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.

At Manifeste-2023, the workshop Improvisation Voice And Electronics Master Class is hosting one ULYSSES-endorsed performer,  Paolo Leonardi, as part of his ULYSSES journey.

This workshop, led by Valérie Philippin (singer), Jean Lochard (IRCAM computer music designer/teacher) and Mikhail Malt (IRCAM researcher/teacher), is intended for singers, opera artists, and vocal performers who wish to learn both contemporary vocal languages and computer music skills in a voice/electronics duo improvisation situation. Alternating between the roles of singer/improviser and electronic performer, students acquire skills in both areas. The workshop will help them expand their vocal language, their knowledge of the sonic universes explored by electronics, and their creativity through sound exploration and spontaneous composition. The workshop ends with a final concert during the ManiFeste festival, open to the public.


Monday, June 19 — Sunday, June 24, 2023, Paris (France)
