Studio time is made available to composers of all types of electronic music regardless of their artistic background or stylistic orientation. For most projects an audio technician is also provided. Composers interested in working at DIEM are asked to submit an application form along with examples of previous work.

The digital recording studio is of course attractive for work in the tape medium, and many tape pieces have been produced at DIEM. But there has also been a great amount of interest in live computer music, and DIEM has provided studio time and technical and financial assistance to many projects involving live electronics and interactive computer systems.
