We would like to thank all our new friend composers actually at CCMIX for the Course in Electronic Music. It was amazing to share with you all such a nice experience!
In keeping with Xenakis' belief that interdisciplinary understanding can provide rich, new avenues for musical creativity, this course explores a compositional world where sound itself is the primary material. The nature of sound, how it is perceived, how it may be transformed, and what new forms result are key subjects.
The CCMIX, formerly called Les Ateliers UPIC, is a non-profit center for contemporary music founded in 1985 by composer Iannis Xenakis, with the support of the French Ministry of Culture. At first the studio was given the task of promoting the research of the CEMAMu (Centre des Etudes Mathematiques Automatiques Musicales), notably Xenakis's UPIC system. The center has since enlarged its field of activities to include pedagogy and musical composition, more generally.
