>The Centre de Creation Musicale Iannis Xenakis (CCMIX) announces its
>annual 8-Month Course in Electronic Music. The course will take
>place from October 2005 - May 2006 in Paris, France. Faculty and
>guest lecturers include: Carla Scaletti, Joshua Fineberg, David
>Revill, Jean-Claude Risset, Makis Solomos, Agostino di Scipio,
>Julien Bilodeau, Trevor Wishart and Curtis Roads.

>This course explores a compositional world where sound itself is the
>primary material. The nature of sound, how it is perceived, how it
>may be transformed in differing time scales, and what new forms
>result are key subjects.

>In the Xenakian tradition, this study is highly interdisciplinary:
>the composer who wishes to discover an original path should also
>consider current work in morphology, physics, chemistry, biology,
>architecture and psychology: a developed understanding in these
>fields can provide rich, new avenues for musical creativity.

>In addition to lectures, conferences and discussions, a variety of
>computer music tools will be presented in classes and workshops.
>Participants will receive 9 hours individual studio time weekly;
>assistance is provided when needed. Participants' work will be
>premiered and produced in concert by CCMIX. New in 2005 - 2006,
>CCMIX announces an expansion into the visual arts. Additional
>offerings in this area will be announced as plans become finalized.
>Consider a creative experience in Paris in 2005 - 2006. More
