[Nettime-nl] [ STEIM ] Super Collider Interfaces workshop
Super Collider Interfaces workshop
Goal of this workshop is to explore various functionality and
applications of the SuperCollider 3 (SC3) programming language for
sound synthesis and musical composition, with a focus on external
controllers like HID's (Human Interface Devices like joysticks and
gamepads), MIDI controllers, the configurable MKeys virtual interface
developed by Jeff and STEIM's new USB sensor interface (unofficially
referred to as the 'junXion box').
Through lecture, demonstration, discussion, in-class assignments and
open lab sessions participants will gain a working knowledge of SC3
fundamentals to apply to personal musical and creative goals.
Participants should be familiar with Mac OSX, basic digital audio
concepts such as sound files and MIDI and comfortable using computers
to edit sound files. No programming experience is required.
Participants will be orientated to the programming environment, learn
the syntax of the language, apply interaction and construct graphical
user interfaces, all geared towards external control using various
physical controllers, both MIDI and HID.
This course is designed for a diverse audience and is relevant for
you if you are:
* an instumentalist interested in using a computer to do sysntheis or
processing of your instrument.
* an artist interested in incorporating sound into your work.
* a composer interested in using a computer to do algorithmic
* a computer musician interested in exploring another language.
STEIM will supply a number of MIDI and HID controllers (but also
bring your own if you have one!), and for people without their own
laptop there is a possibility to use a STEIM mac (in this case please
contact email@example.com so we can arrange a computer for you).
Jeff Carey is computer music composer and performer studied in Audio
Technology at American University and Sonology at the Institute for
Sonology of the Koninklijk Conservatorium in the Netherlands. His
work has always centered around system oriented approaches to sound
production and composition. His graduate studies was spent
researching electronic music, algorithmic composition and real-time
applications, mainly using SuperCollider. His undergraduate studies
include physics, mathematics, computer programming, acoustics,
electronics, digital audio, sound synthesis and recording studio
The workshop will be held on 6 evenings, from 19:00h - 22:30h, at
STEIM, Amsterdam. There will be a possibility to join a performance
on STEIM's local-stop concert night on November 23.
Dates: November 7, 10, 14, 17, 21, 22.
Fee: €75 (to be payed on the first evening)
Registration can be done only through the STEIM website: www.steim.nl.
