supercollider workshop, berlin 31mar2012: Good looking sounds
Saturday, 31.03.2012, 11.00 - 19.00 (with break) @ LEAP
A one day workshop by Fredrik Olofsson about generating strange graphics in the audio programming language SuperCollider. The idea is to not care much about how the code we write actually sounds or works, but rather that it looks cool graphically. We will deliberately perform odd math operations to mess up the audio signals and explore and abuse the scope, plot and post windows as well as draw custom waveforms and spectrograms.
The level of the workshop will not be too advanced and there is no need to be a fluent SuperCollider programmer to make interesting visuals. Bring your own headphones and a laptop with SuperCollider (3.4 or 3.5, http://supercollider.sourceforge.net/) installed. If you have trouble installing this software please come half an hour early and we will help. Workshop language is english.
Please send an email until 27.03.2012 with subject “Good Looking sounds” to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The number of participants is limited to 15 places. The participation fee is 25€ per person and must be paid by 29.03.2012 at the latest. After e-mail registration you will receive an email with payment information.
Fredrik Olofsson graduated in 2000 as a composer at the Royal University College of Music in Stockholm, but has since then extended his artistic repertoire with electronics, code, video and installation art. He is a frequent contributor within the SuperCollider open source community and has held related workshop all over Europe, Asia and Australia. He is also one of the founding members of TOPLAP, a collective that popularized the use of live coding.
