Rationalizing Culture

University of California Press

This chapter analyzes mediations and practices in the Institut de Recherche et de Coordination Acoustique/Musique's (IRCAM) intellectual work by examining its text and codes, objects and machines, and its sociality. It shows that these come to be employed in music production through an account of composer AV's commissioned visit to IRCAM in 1984. The chapter describes the social and technological character of music production, and how various mediations entered into musical work.

Keywords:   IRCAM, intellectual work, music production, sociality, mediations, musical work
