A cross-field workshop, “Incarnating Sounds” – jointly arranged by TNUA’s Center for Art and Technology, Department of Music and France’s GRAME Centre National de Creation Musicale in November – attracted the participation of more than 30 students from various fields.
 
The three-day workshop – running from November 17 to 19 – made use of the GRAME-developed Light Wall System to highlight composer Thierry de May’s ideas and the Light Music – an installation of music and interactive multimedia jointly developed by GRAME and Charleroi Danse.
 
It was a play integrating art and software that attempted to redefine and reinterpret art by creating a new form of visual and audio expression within the frameworks of art and technology. 
 
The participating students – ranging from undergraduates to doctoral students – were from the departments of music, dance, fine arts and new media, as well as from the IMCCI (International Master of the Arts Program in Cultural and Creative Industries) and IMPACT (Interdisciplinary Multimedia Performing Arts Collaborative Technology) programs.  
 
The students were guided by a team of GRAME instructors, including its director James Giroudon, percussionist Jean Geoffroy and IT engineer Christophe Lebreton. The students presented their achievements in 10 performances on November 19.
