Computing Sound – Computer as an Instrument – Performance Systems for Sound Art
February 23 at7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
In the hands of an artist, the computer is the most expressive and innovative instrument for sound and music. The magic lies in building performance systems that enable real-time creative expression with defined limits. In this workshop, Ali will explore computer-based strategies for sound synthesis, performance systems, algorithmic techniques, and connecting “outside the box” to hardware and visual art. Ali will share his favorite techniques, built in Reaktor, MAX/MSP, SuperCollider, and Processing.js
