New Directions in Europe: Program No. 3

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 60 min
Event Type: Documentary Program Origin: KFJM

Program No. 3 from a 13-part series exploring new music activity throughout Europe, produced in 1984 by Ned Wharton of KFJM (Grand Forks, North Dakota), and funded by a grant from the National Public Radio’s Satellite Development Fund. Recorded at the Pompidou Center in Paris, this program focuses on the Workshop for Instrument Research at the Institut de Recherche et Coordination Acoustique -Musique (IRCAM), a Paris based center dedicated to the study of avant-garde electro-acoustic music and the science of sound. Wharton interviews the French flutist, and Workshop Coordinator, Pierre Yves-Artaud, about the various programs he was overseeing on the development of new or modified instruments, and modern performance techniques. Also heard are several works that were produced at IRCAM. Opened in 1977, IRCAM provides a forum for acousticians, computer music programers, performers and composers to work together in the development of new musical tools, software, and instruments.
