Works in Berlin Germany

Producer and electronic music composer, Olivier Pasquet taught himself composition and later computer music while working in various recording studios. From 1996 to 1999, he studied composition in Cambridge, uk. Since, at Ircam and elsewhere, he works alone and collaborates with artists coming from various esthetic worlds (digital art, popular or contemporary music). He is also often involved in shows : danse, opera, theatre music and classical contemporary theatre. With 65 creations, he has worked with people like Georges Aperghis, Brice Pauset, Ludovic Lagarde, William Forsythe, Rand Steiger, Florian Hecker… He writes electronic music or IDM using his own concepts or algorithms. His pieces, shown in concert halls or museums around the world, are more and more focussed on physical forms allowing some kind of materialization. One of his research interests is composition for voiced or spoken text and “parametric” composition strongly linked with architectural design. He organized the first european Max/MSP/Jitter workshop Andreas Breitscheid and Manuel Poletti at FNM. He got the Villa Medicis, the Arcadi, a residency at Tokyo Wonder Site and Chile.

Ircam musical research residency

Thu Sep 30, 2010 00:00


Via the music research residency program, the Department for the Coordination of Scientific and Musical Research seeks to reinforce the interaction between the scientific and musical community by appealing to the computer music community at large. This program offers scholarships to artists and young professionals wishing to take advantage of a period of residency at IRCAM in order to pursue their music research projects in a stimulating collaborative environment.
Each year - via online submission - a limited number of candidates is selected by a panel of international experts based on the following criteria: project content; scientific and artistic motivation; quality and innovative character of the project; mastery of the technologies needed for the project; demonstrated ability to manage a collaborative research project.
Each selected candidate will benefit from a residency at IRCAM for a specific period, associated with one or more of the institute’s project teams. The candidate will receive a scholarship of 1200 euros. IRCAM does not cover travel and lodging expenses.
During the research residency, candidates will work in the context of the Research and Development department in order to pursue their work. They will collaborate with members of one or more teams thus enabling them to deepen the musical and technological issues explored through experimentation as well as participate in the intellectual life of the institute.
At the end of their stay, the selected candidates will be asked to document and share the results of their work via written publications and public presentations given to the IRCAM community as well as the international computer music community at large.
