IRCAM Residency

France's Institute For The Coordination Of Scientific And Musical Research (IRCAM for short) is offering scholarships to artists and scholars at the beginning of their careers who would like to spend a period of residency at IRCAM in Paris. The residency offers a group of candidates the opportunity to develop their own music research projects with one or more of IRCAM's project teams. They offer a scholarship of €1200 but don't cover travel or lodging costs. Since opening in 1977 under the directorship of composer Pierre Boulez, IRCAM has had an important role in the development of electroacoustic music and sound art. The deadline for application is 30 September, click here for more information.
