ManiFeste, in particular the academy, is a moment of privileged encounters among different protagonists in the world of live performance. This year, the focus is on theater with two very different projects led by two major players in French theater today: Daniel Jeanneteau and Joris Lacoste.
For these special projects, young composers are introduced to the artistic and educational teams a few months prior to the workshop in June to begin preparations.
Composition Workshop: In Vivo Théâtre Daniel Jeanneteau
Tuesday, February 6 — Thursday, February 8 and Monday, June 4 — Friday, June 22, 2018
@Ircam & T2G – Théâtre de Gennevilliers
Présentations publiques du lundi 18 au samedi 23 juin 2018
Educational Advisors: Daniel Jeanneteau, director and IRCAM computer music designers
The director Daniel Jeanneteau offers 3 young composers the opportunity to create a collective performance working on a sonic scenography for the Iliad, materializing the poem’s extreme violence. This sonic stage design, purely electronic, is nourished by contributions from the 3 young composers using IRCAM software to transform and spatialize the sound.
An initial work session for the 3 selected composers, Daniel Jeanneteau, and the IRCAM team will be held in Paris from Tuesday, February 6 through Thursday, February 8, 2018.
Applicants must be born after January 1, 1986.
Composers cannot take part in the composition workshops more than two consecutive years. They can, however, take part in all the academy’s activities as auditors.
Prerequisites (for projects with electronics): Applicants must have intermediary-level knowledge of programming in Max or Live and use the software on a regular basis. For Max, applicants should have followed the beginner’s level Max course or provide proof of equivalent knowledge of the Max tutorials 1 -22, Data tutorials 1 – 5, MIDI tutorials 1 – 5, and MSP tutorials 1 – 31.
Applicants must download the questionnaire on their level of computer literacy and return it with their application online.
