SUMMER INTENSIVE IN ELECTRO-ACOUSTIC MUSIC July 6th - July 31st, 1998 Les Ateliers UPIC, the electro-acoustic studios of Iannis Xenakis, offers a month-long intensive course in electronic music and composition for American college students. The course takes place at UPIC studios in Alfortville (Paris), France. Group class sessions and private creative work in the studios are the heart of this program. Classes will be taught by Gerard Pape (Columbia, U of Michigan, Ann Arbor), Julio Estrada (U of Mexico), Joel Chadabe (SUNY Albany), Randall Neal (Bennington), and others. Assistance in private studio work will be provided. All classes and studio sessions conducted in English. Les Ateliers UPIC maintains both UPIC and Pro-Tools 4 studios. The UPIC is the revolutionary graphic composition/synthesis system created by Iannis Xenakis. Newest studio acquisitions include Di Giugno's MARS workstation and MetaSynth. Les Ateliers UPIC is supported in part by the French Ministry of Culture and Communication and by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Field trips will be provided to observe other aspects of the French and European electronic music scene. In past years these have included Pierre Schaeffer's Groupe de Récherches Musicales at Radio France; IRCAM at the Pompidou Centre; a Stockhausen electronic music performance in Amsterdam, and other studio groups or individuals working at the classic or cutting edge. Students will be housed in the heart of the Parisian Left Bank. All Paris attractions are within walking distance of the dorm located adjacent to the Luxembourg Palace. Class enrollment is limited. Consider a creative experience in Paris for 1998!
