RESEARCH & ORGANIZATIONS

LABORATORY FOR SYNTHETIC & ELECTRONIC POETRY (LABSYNTHE)
Frank Dufour founded Labsynthe in 2016 in the School of Arts, Technology & Emerging Media at UT Dallas, to explore hybrid and multimedia forms of expression emerging within the practice of digital technologies.  Labsynthe studies the history of electronic literature as well as experimental art forms originating with new media at the beginning of the 20th & 21st centuries.

LABORATOIRE MUSIQUE ET INFORMATIQUE DE MARSEILLE
Frank Dufour has been a member of the the M.I.M. since 2003.  The particularity of the M.I.M. is to develop research which is undertaken by creators, not theorists. The research projects are thus born from the questions referring to the problems of creation and of the contemporary musical practices. Its field of action is that of “fundamental research” in the sense defined by Pierre Schaeffer in his “Traité des Objets Musicaux (Seuil ed., 1966, p. 360)
