Interfacing the Vortex: Interactive Granular Synthesis


05-07 July: Workshop Interfacing the Vortex: Interactive Granular Synthesis 05 July: SuperCollider: An Intro with Marinos Koutsomichalis | 7-9pm | (S//S Project Space) 06 July: Arduino and Electronics: An Introduction | 7-9pm | (S//S Project Space) 07 July: Specific Project Work w/ Marinos Koutsomichalis | 12:30-5:30pm | (S//S Project Space) Related Event: Pure Data Starter | 12 May | 1pm-7pm | SOUND//SPACE Project Space | This workshop will focus on granular synthesis and live interaction with sensors using the SuperCollider programming environment and the Arduino electronics prototyping platform. After an introduction to the software/hardware involved. Participants will be guided into using miscellaneous sensors to interface with their own granular synthesis algorithm and start working on their own interactive pieces. No further programming or other experienced is assumed. It is essential that you bring your own laptop and a pair of headphones. IF YOU CHOSE TO BRING YOUR OWN MATERIALS YOU WILL NEED: an arduino board; a breadboard; jumpers; resistors; and whatever analogue sensor interest you: accelerometer; thermistors; photo-resistors; piezo-transducers; soft-pots; flex; tilt, etc. Unfortunately, there will be no extra materials available if you forget your materials! Workshop Leader Biography: Active internationally in both academic and non academic milieux, Marinos Koutsomichalis has been working as an artist since the mid '00s using a variety of mediums.
