IT IS A GREAT SHAME – A FRENCH SHAME !

CORCORAN Frank.

Age : 67 years . Ireland.

I participated in the big IMEB Competition in 1999.

My ” SWEENEY´S VISION ” ( it was a 1997 WDR Cologne Commission ) was awarded the Premier Prix.

The IMEB Competition was

EXCELLENTLY conceived and administered. Winning its PREMIER PRIX contributed GREATLY to my career as a composer !

It is a great shame for the French Ministry of Culture to withdraw vital support from IMEB and to force it to

close its doors this July 2011. A great shame.

IMEB was foremost in its field; a flag-ship for French musical culture and for

international electronic music in all its many facets.

A great shame for this great cultural nation. A great shame !
