Concerts - Open work


Works of composers from around the World on the theme of Art and Science.

As part of the Art & Science Days, Musinfo proposes to composers and artists from around the world to participate in the call for a sound work, following the tradition that began in Bourges several years ago

The subject of this call is the relationship between science and the arts. The works must either take their inspiration from scientific knowledge, or apply this knowledge in their compositional process.
