|[Nettime-nl] [ STEIM ] Announcement Reaktor Workshop by FX Randomiz|
STEIM presents: Reaktor workshop On April 25 through April 28 FX Randomiz will give a workshop on Reaktor. The workshop will be hands-on, alternating between fx presenting different aspects of Reaktor, and the participants working on their computer to try out things. The workshop will concentrate on creative sample processing with Reaktor and therefore on building and reverse engineering specific ensembles for that aim. We will learn about the vast possibilities when working with Reaktor not as a plugin, but as a standalone tool for creating and manipulation loops and samples. The so called destructive editing offers sonic results that are not possible otherwise, and it opens up a quite different way to interact with other sound processing software. "On the first day I plan to give a brief introduction in the modules and building blocks of Reaktor, so that also beginners can follow the next days. I will present a selection of existing sample-processing ensembles and will also show how to build recording-devices into existing ensembles, that adjust themselves to the tempo of any sample-loop you load. They also alow a very quick way to resample the sonic output and immediately use it as a new sample-source - a more intuitive way of working than rendering or bouncing inside a host software. On day two and three we will mainly reverse engineer some ensembles and also go the opposite way of adding functions to existing ensembles. In a workshop of a few days this makes more sense than building a simple ensemble from the ground up, as this way we can handle more complex structures and keep it interesting for beginners as well as experienced reaktor users. I have selected some of my own and manipulated ensembles for that purpose, where all but one of them you will not find in the library: two sample processors that create a great variety of sample loops out of other sample loops and can even be used as composition tools; one live tool, based on realtime manipulation and stacking of sample-loops; one sample based drum machine that offers compositional tools similar to the now popular chaos designer; one resampling and re-recording device for quick destructive editing like described above. Often some easy tricks raise the potential of an ensemble exponentialy, often some small addition makes working with a tool much more comfortable. One major goal is to learn how to quickly adjust ready made ensembles to your own needs and fit them to your own musical thinking and working. On day four we'll kind of get back to the beginning and explore how the newly created tools can interact with each other to get to small compositions made entirely with Reaktor as a standalone program. Where needed, even in the process of creating music we can still insert useful functions into the ensembles as part of the compositional process. The results will be used as sources inside the live tool for a big jam session all together." Date: April 25 - 28 2005 Time: 10:00h - 16:00h Place: STEIM (achtergracht 19 / amsterdam) Cost: € 160 (beginner & advanced) / €120 (advanced) People can register for the workshop in two ways: * for the full workshop (beginner & advanced, 4 days, € 160) * for the advanced workshop (april 26 - 28, € 120) For the advanced workshop people will need to have a basic knowledge of Reaktor. Participants will need to bring their own computer with Reaktor. Please contact workshops [at] steim [dot] nl if you're interested in this workshop but you don't have a laptop or Reaktor, and we can see what we can arrange. Registration can only be done through the STEIM website. Be sure to mention the type of workshop you want to attend. For more information you can email workshops [at] steim [dot] nl.
