Diemo Schwarz, born in Germany in 1969, is a researcher and developer at Ircam (Institut de Recherche et Coordination Acoustique-Musique, Paris), composer of electronic music, and musician on drums and laptop.

His research work includes improving interaction between musician and computer, and exploiting large masses of sound for interactive real-time sound synthesis, collaborating with composers such as Philippe Manoury, Dai Fujikura, Stefano Gervasoni, Pierre Jodlowski, Aaron Einbond, Sam Britton.  He holds a PhD in computer science applied to music, awarded in 2004 for the development of a new method of corpus-based concatenative musical sound synthesis by unit selection from a large soundbase.

His compositions and live performances—under the name of his solo project Mean Time Between Failure, or improvising with musicians such as George Lewis, Evan Parker, Frédéric Blondy, Victoria Johnson, Etienne Brunet,Luka Juhart, Pierre-Alexander Tremblay—explore the possibilities of corpus-based concatenative synthesis to re-contextualise any sound source by rearranging sound units into a new musical framework using interactive navigation through a sound space.



lexis baskind is a musician, sound engineer and author/consultant of technological solutions for audio production and listening systems. he first learned sound recording with benoit fabre au conservatoire national at aubervilliers/la-courneuve regional music school, and followed at the same time scientific and technical studies. he joined the ircam in 1999, and there he pursued researches on room acoustics. obtaining a phd in 2003, he has been working since then on music creation, theatre and dance projects, for numerous structures including ircam, the conservatoire national supérieur de musique et de danse de paris, the campagnie des musiques à ouïr and the centre international de recherche musicale. among others, he worked with composers philippe leroux, andréa vigani, héctor parra, pedro amaral, françois paris, philippe hurel, vladimir tarnopolsky, alexandros markéas, hanspeter kyburz, as well as with the theatre director jean-françois peyret, in music, theatre and dance projects melting live electronics and traditional instruments. he works regularly on artistical and technical projects requiring the development of specific solutions for sound processing, sound design, and interfacing with gesture and visual analysis systems. formerly professor in sound engineering in the hochschule der populären künste fh (berlin), he's been also regularly giving courses in sound engineering and computer music at the hochschule für musik detmold and in music schools, universities and training institutes for music production.
