With the ACROE GENESIS software.

The philosophy of musical and sound creation developed by ACROE is based on the instrumentality as well for the creation of the sound itself as for its composition. This choice makes it possible to find the richness and subtlety of the sounds of instruments and acoustic objects in the digital and computer world. The workshop will familiarize with this new method of musical and sound creation and experiment, the creation and composition of virtual instruments, and all their creative and musical possibilities.
