Workshop in functional audio pattern design

Date :
Time: 14:00 - 17:00
Location: afo - 1st floor | conference hall
max. participants: 8
Level :
  • Intermediate

In this workshop the programmer and live-coder Hlödver will give a quick tour of his live-coding application Panaeolus, based on Clojure and Csound. All material for installing the (free) software will be provided. After the participants have the programs set up, we will join together and create some networked noise/music/techno. Forehand experience with programming is not a requirement but forehand experience with music theory may come in handy. The ideas of building musical patterns in Panaeolus can be helpful for audio hackers using Supercollider/PD for audio synthesis.

- Getting started with GNU Emacs.
- Overview of commonly used ways of sound synthesis
- Basic understanding of algorithmic music
- Basic overview of clojure/lisp

Options for Participants: 

Laptop computer with preferably Linux, Mac is accepted. Windows users
would be on their own.
