[Nettime-nl] [ STEIM ] SuperCollider 3 workshop
The goal of this workshop is to explore various functionality and
applications in SuperCollider 3 (SC3) programming language for sound
synthesis and musical composition, with a focus on using external
controllers like HID-Human Interface Devices (joysticks and
gamepads), MIDI controllers, MKeys configurable virtual interface
developed by Jeff and STEIM's junXionboard.
Through lectures, demonstrations, discussions, in-class assignments
and open lab sessions, participants will gain a working knowledge of
SC3 fundamentals to apply for personal musical and creative goals.
Participants should be familiar with Mac OSX, MIDI, basic digital
audio concepts, and comfortable using computers to edit sound files.
For more experienced participants there will be plenty of
opportunities for individual questions and support.
Participants will be introduced to the programming environment,
syntax of the language, interaction techniques and ways to construct
graphical effective user interfaces, all tied in closely with 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 instrumentalist interested in using a computer to do synthesis
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.
* a SC3 user interested in exploring other aspects of the environment.
We assume that you bring your own laptop preferably running Mac OS X.
If this is not possible, please let us know and we can see what we
can do to accommodate you.
STEIM will supply a number of MIDI and HID controllers, but you are
very much encouraged to bring your own!
The workshop will take place at STEIM Amsterdam, from Monday January
28 through Friday February 1. Included is an afternoon with special
STEIM presentations on junXion, LiSa and the junXionboard to place
the SC3 environment in a STEIM context.
Recently The Netherlands hosted the SuperCollider 3 symposium. Visit

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 Hague, NL. His work
has always centered around system oriented approaches to sound
production and composition. His graduate studies were 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
