Courses on computer composition and related matters taught both by local and invited teachers. Six to ten composers are invited annually to work at LIPM's studios.
The Music Research and Production Laboratory was founded in 1982, but can trace its history back to 1958. It forms part of the Music Department of the Music and Technology Division, Recoleta Cultural Center and is supported by the Buenos Aires City Municipality. It is the most important electroacoustic music centre in Latin America. The state-of-the-art Laboratory is concerned with studies into the current scope of contemporary music and its relationship to technology. Six to ten composers are invited annually to work at its studios. Technical support is offered both to researchers (for projects oriented to developing computer composition software), to composers for producing electronic/computer works and to teachers wishing to develop new teaching methods. The Laboratorio organises extension courses, workshops and lectures and publishes compositions. A residence and exchange program exists between LIPM, the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA) of Stanford University, and the Center for Research in Computing and the Arts (CRCA) of the University of California at San Diego. It has active academic exchanges with centers dedicated to electroacoustic music all over the world.
