DAY BY DAY PROGRAM
Wednesday, June 16, 2004
At the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris, alongside the jazz department’s improvisation classes, there exists what is known as a generative improvisation class. This class's teachers, Alexandros Markéas and Alain Savouret, both composers, present their students with very daring and imaginative methods of working. These methods are frequently born of the many concepts coming directly from contemporary music and demand from each musician a highly reactive audio perception.

Using some simple computer manipulations as well as various real examples, this workshop seeks to demonstrate the different ways in which composers can integrate new musical computer technologies into their productions and to look at how they can interact with classical orchestral instruments. This workshop is also an opportunity to discover the real time sound and image processing techniques in use at Ircam.
