About ACSM116 and CCMC

The Atelier de Creation Sonore et Musicale 116 (ACSM116), is a japanese voluntary organization founded by Japanese composers and academics. Since 2001, ACSM116 has organized The Contemporary Computer Music Concert (CCMC) Festival in Tokyo and/or in Kyoto. The CCMC concerts are characterized by the use of the Acousmonium.

 

The Acousmonium is the sound diffusion system designed in 1974 by François Bayle, who was then in charge of the Groupe de Recherches Musicales (GRM). This system is called the “orchestra of loudspeakers” as it combines various loudspeakers to “project” into space the electroacoustic music sound.
