Subject: Joint ZKM IRCAM residency on spatial music
From: ludger brümmer
Artistic Research Residency Program 2017
Featuring IRCAM Residency & Joint ZKM / IRCAM Residency Tracks
The artistic research residency program is open to composers,
professional musicians, choreographers, stage directors, sound
designers, and students who wish to carry out their musical and artistic
research using IRCAM or its partners’ facilities and extensive research
environment. Upon nomination, each candidate will be granted a
residency in an associated laboratory during a specific period that will
range from three to six months long. During this period, candidates will
work in association with a team/project at IRCAM or with a partner (this
year will be marked by the first collaboration with ZKM | Institute for
Music & Acoustics), carry out the musical and scientific experimental
work associated with their proposed project, and participate in the
intellectual life of the institute. At the end of their stay,
candidates will be invited to share the results of their work with the
international musical research community in the form of documentation
and public presentations.
ZKM / IRCAM Joint Residency Track
The purpose of the Joint ZKM/IRCAM residency is to foster collaborations
between the two institutions around one or two artistic projects that
demand joining research, technical and artistic efforts between the two
Candidates applying to the Joint ZKM/IRCAM Residency Track should choose
the Special Track in their application. Submitted applications should
clearly demonstrate collaborative aspects with two institutions for the
project. The Work Plan of the proposal should also clearly demonstrate
the will to carry out the project in both locations (Paris/France for
IRCAM and Karlsruhe/Germany for ZKM) during the project life. Given the
bi-localized nature of this call, the minimum duration residency for
this call is 6 months. Final selection for this track is subject to a
joint evaluation of proposals by ZKM and IRCAM, based on relevancy,
quality and novelty of proposed projects.
Final laureates of Joint ZKM/IRCAM Residency Track can redeem travel
costs between laboratories once or twice during the residency, based on
the proposed project. Laureates are expected to spend at least half of
their residency period in each institution.
For this call, the Joint ZKM/IRCAM Residency Track program is
particularly interested in artistic residencies calling for innovative
employment of Wavefield Synthesis, Vector Based Amplitude Panning and
Ambisonics spatial sound diffusions. But proposals covering other themes
within the activities of both institutions are welcome.
ZKM is a cultural institution in Karlsruhe, Germany, that combines
production and research, exhibitions and events, among others, for the
development of interdisciplinary art projects. […]
