Programme de Résidence en Recherche Artistique 2019-2020
IRCAM's Artistic Research Residency Program offers artists of all disciplines the opportunity to collaborate with one or more IRCAM research teams as part of a residency that can be extended in a partner institution. IRCAM is partnering with Zentrum für Kunst und Medien (ZKM), Karlsruhe, Germany and Société des Arts Technologiques (SAT), Montreal, Canada, for the 11th edition of its Artistic Research Residency Program. The benefits of residence are many: Offer a time for reflection on its practice; Work with researchers to develop an new artistic research path together; Develop or perfect an innovative creative tool; Conduct experimental artistic research; Produce the prototype of an artefact; Compose the sketch of a piece, a performance; Test a configuration, an innovative technical set-up like a 360-degree immersive audio / video device such as the SAT Satosphère or the ZKM's Klangdom. An international panel of experts, including the leaders of the expected host project-teams, will evaluate each proposal. The evaluation is based on the originality of the project and its innovative character, collaborative aspects, experience and ability to undertake the proposed project.
