IRCAM, the Institute for Research and Coordination in Acoustics/Music, is one of the world’s largest public research centers dedicated to both musical expression and scientific research. Founded in Paris by composer Pierre Boulez in 1977, IRCAM allows contemporary composers to combine their innovative artistic sensibilities with scientific and technological experimentation. Following a weeklong residency at the Boston University Center for New Music, IRCAM will present two extraordinary concerts of music presented by the Boston-based ensemble Sound Icon and the JACK Quartet.
The IRCAM concerts and residency are co-produced by the ICA/Boston, the Boston University Center for New Music, and the IRCAM-Centre Pompidou and are made possible with the generous support of the Boston University College of Fine Arts and School of Music; The Boston University Center for the Humanities; The French-American Fund for Contemporary Music, a program of FACE; The Cultural Service of the French Consulate in Boston; and with the friendly support of the Ernst von Siemens Foundation.
First Republic Bank is proud to sponsor the ICA’s 2015–16 Performance Season.
