Live coding at the open workshops of the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris

As part of the "Féminin / Féminine" project of the Atelier des Feuillantines supported by the Bibliothèque Nationale de France, "live coding" of innovative compositional processes extracted from works written by female composers.

This part of the Féminin / Féminine project, aims to highlight the work of women artists, differs from many similar projects in that it honours non-standard approaches that women have developed as a result of their exclusion from official history, showing other possible directions than those adopted by the conventions of their time. Using the constraints and skills attributed to them, these women have sometimes created links between distant disciplines, invented new forms of music, notably electronic music. A first concert took place at the BnF, comparing the writing of Hélène de Montgeroult and Bebe Barron. The artists used OpenMusic (software developed at Ircam) to model these principles of composition.
