Technological and Social Problems around Production

(p.252) Chapter IX Aporias
Rationalizing Culture

Born Georgina

University of California Press

This chapter examines the technological and social problems related to music production at the Institut de Recherche et de Coordination Acoustique/Musique (IRCAM), also discussing the character of collaborative authorship, the oral culture of research, and IRCAM's problems of lack of stabilization and the lack of documentation of its research. It suggests that the coexistence within IRCAM of the overproduction of technical codes and texts with the institute's oral culture of mutual help was far from contradictory.

Keywords:   IRCAM, music production, collaborative authorship, oral culture, technical codes, mutual help
