IRCAM's Conditions of Existence

(p.66) Chapter III Background
Rationalizing Culture

Born Georgina

University of California Press

This chapter provides the historical background of the Institut de Recherche et de Coordination Acoustique/Musique (IRCAM) and its conditions of existence, suggesting that the IRCAM culture is situated in a space which is crossed by both artistic and technological inflections of the rhetoric of modern French nationalism. It also explains that the experience of American researchers at IRCAM shows that it is the more immediate context of French cultural life which resonates with and converges to produce IRCAM's character.

Keywords:   IRCAM, artistic inflections, technological inflections, French nationalism, cultural life
