The Cdmc holds a unique collection representing all aesthetics within musical creation. This collection has grown thanks to the collaboration of composers, publishers and Radio France. With a consultation area open to the public, the centre also affords access to many online resources through the Catalogue and the Gateway to Contemporary Music. A beacon of the latest music news with its website, the Cdmc organises encounters with the movers and shakers of contemporary music.
The Cdmc presents a season of encounters, seminars and day study sessions designed to counterpoint the views of specialists and professionals and to spotlight composers and performers. Focussing on topical aspects of the music scene, they are organised in collaboration with the main players of musical creation: ensembles, centres for creation, festivals, etc., as well as with those involved in research, the universities and conservatories. Dédicaces (Dedications): these are encounters featuring newly released books, discs or DVDs.
Robert Pascal: « Les Instants élémentaires » [« Elementary instants »]
. at 18h - Centre Wallonie-Bruxelles
Encounter with Robert Pascal and his work on Instants élémentaires, a short interactive piece for a solo instrument and electronics
Presentation of the CD-ROM Instants élémentaires
The apprenticeship of mixed music also takes in the work of amateurs, and yet few pieces are adapted for beginners on account of the difficulties of performance, and especially the complexity of the associated computing tools.
The aim of the CD-ROM Instants élémentaires is to offer both a score and a way of handling the computing tool in real time adapted for use by beginners.
