THE INTERNATIONAL CONFEDERATION OF ELECTROACOUSTIC MUISC / ICEM

The International Confederation of Electroacoustic Music (ICEM) was founded in 1981 in Bourges, France, at the initiative of Christian Clozier. In 1974, Clozier had founded the Journées d’Étude Internationale des Musiques Expérimentales (JEIME), bringing together composers from all over the world during the second week of the International Festival of Experimental Music of Bourges. These meetings, where discussions about various aspects of electroacoustic music took place, provided an important forum for reflecting on social, aesthetic, technical, and economic issues.
