Workshop- IRIN
Carlos Caires Professor at the Lisbon School of Music and author of the IRIN composition tool
IRIN is a composition tool implemented as a standalone in Max/MSP and designed to improve various composition operations included in the micro montage paradigm. IRIN uses a comprehensive user interface containing various editing windows that allow the composer to assemble, visualize, play, and modify various types of sound objects.
As part of SEMPER, the permanent seminar of INET-md's Performance and Creation Group, a workshop on sound creation and composition using digital media is proposed with Carlos Caires, author of IRIN. This is a composition tool implemented as a standalone in Max/MSP and designed to improve various composition operations.
Carlos Caires | Carlos Caires graduated in Composition from the Escola Superior de Música de Lisboa (Composition with Constança Capdeville and Christopher) and went on to obtain a Maîtrise (1999), a Diplome d'Études Approfondies (2000) and a PhD (with an FCT scholarship, 2006) from the University of Paris8 Saint Denis-Vincennes, under the supervision of Horacio Vaggione. He is a coordinating professor at the Lisbon School of Music, where he began teaching in 1993, a researcher at CITAR - Catholic University (Porto) between 2007 and 2013, and an integrated researcher at CESEM-FCSH since 2014. He is also a collaborator at the CICM-Centre de recherche Informatique et Création Musicale (University of Paris8, Saint-Denis Vincennes). He taught at the Setúbal Regional Conservatoire and at the Music School of the National Conservatoire (between 1988 and 1991) and, from 1992, at the Lisbon Higher School of Music. Alongside his composition course, Carlos Caires attended various summer courses in choral and orchestral conducting in Portugal and abroad. Together with conductor Paulo Lourenço, he directed the choir of the Portuguese Musical Youth, later founding (also with Paulo Lourenço) the Ricercare Choir, which he directed until 1998, when he left for Paris. His music has been performed at various festivals in Europe, Asia, and the USA. Among the ensembles that have performed his music are the Casa da Música Symphony Orchestra, Casa da Música Choir, Remix Ensemble, Gulbenkian Orchestra, Lisbon Metropolitan Orchestra, Portuguese Symphony Orchestra, Symphony Orchestra and Wind Orchestra of the Lisbon School of Music, Chamber Choir of the Lisbon School of Music, Wind Orchestra of the University of Aveiro, OrchestrUtopica, Coro Ricercare, Sinfonietta de Lisboa, Lisbon Contemporary Music Group, Ensemble Ars Ad Hoc, Ensemble Futurs Musiques, Gruppo di Percussione d'ella RAI, Sond'Ar-Te Electric Ensemble and Smith Quartet. In 1995 he was awarded the Joly Braga Santos Prize for his work Al Niente, in 1996 the Claudio Carneyro Prize for his work Wordpainting, and in 1998 the ACARTE Prize for his work Retábulo-Melodrama. Carlos Caires has developed various computer applications in the fields of electroacoustic music and computer-assisted composition, most notably the sound micromontage software IRIN, a project he began during his doctorate and has been updating to this day. His work also includes composing music and sound for film, and he has so far presented four animated short films at the Monstra Festival, which were later shown internationally.
