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 an Acousmonium.
The Acousmonium is a sound diffusion system designed in 1974 by François Bayle, who was then leading the famous “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.
