Royaumont associates contemporary music and the creation born of cross-cultural encounters. The Musical Creation pole, created in 2019, aims to defend musical creation as a whole, and in particular to act on the dialogue between repertoires and musical practices. It wants to facilitate and stimulate the meeting between creators, from aesthetic universes or practices that are a priori distant: written or scholarly music; contemporary; oral music; improvised music.

The Pole continues to support the disciplines present so far in the same way: contemporary, traditional, improvised music, and many others, defended until now by the New Voices and Transcultural Music programs: it is a question of enriching creation through new approaches, and not favoring one expression to the detriment of others.

Royaumont offers a perfect setting for this type of work, which requires respect for difference, the ability to question, reciprocal curiosity and depth of exchange.
