Cursus 2 / Alban Richard

The creative projects by the young composers graduating from the IRCAM Cursus 2 program assert their penchants: antinomical aesthetics, divergent approaches to electronics.

From the imaginings of Aaron Einbond on images of science to the Baroque rhetoric reread by Fernanado Villanueva Carretero to the low tech DIY in With my limbs in the dark, one single idea, that of testing computer systems that become an organic part of the intended music. This idea is also found in the work by Paul Clift and the choreographer Alban Richard where a system of sound diffusion is attached to the dancer's body and to the bodies of the musical instruments.
