We are happy to announce the creation of a new transdisciplinary laboratory called PRISM (Perception, Representations, Image, Sound, Music) founded by researchers in the Marseilles area from the laboratories LMA (Laboratory of Mechanics and Acoustics), ASTRAM (Arts, Sciences, Technologies for Audiovisual Multimedia Research), LESA (Laboratory of Studies in Sciences of the Arts), LNC (Laboratory of Cognitive Neuroscience), CPPM (Centre for Particle Physics of Marseille) and artists from the School of Arts in Aix-en-Provence (ESA), in particular Locus Sonus.

PRISM associates various scientific disciplines together with the arts, on questions related to Perception and Representations. These questions are addressed through three shared objects of study: sound, image and music. This unprecedented laboratory is supported by the Aix-Marseille University and the CNRS.
