Six Months Ago...

Today, I was paging through some old photo-SD card, and ran across a set of images from six months ago. I was in Europe post-Loop Conference, and spent a few days (with my friend and co-worker Gregory Taylor) in Paris. While there, I met up with another co-worker, Manuel Poletti, for a tour around IRCAM. It was an amazing experience.

I mean, for people like me, this is the equivalent of returning to ones homeland; so many of the tools I user for my personal sonic expression either came from IRCAM, was made useful there, or was first provided on affordable computers by technicians there. It was amazing to walk through the halls, peek into the anechoic chamber (pano view above...), check out the under-construction concert hall or sit in the 60-speaker mixing system. I came away with a major bit of inspiration with the work that they are all doing.

I'm looking forward to my next visit, but in the meantime, I can still bask off the glow of that visit. Just thinking about it makes me want to fire up Modalys...
