Please note! Course description is confirmed for two academic years, which means that in general, e.g. Learning outcomes, assessment methods and key content stays unchanged. However, via course syllabus, it is possible to specify or change the course execution in each realization of the course, such as how the contact sessions are organized, assessment methods weighted or materials used.
Students will gain new skills in sound synthesis, interface design, protocols and conventions used in open source art projects. Students will be familiar with basic technologies for mapping sensor data to sound or graphical data.

CONTENT, ASSESSMENT AND WORKLOAD
This seminar and workshop focuses on sound and code as artistic material
in the fields of new music, sound synthesis, extended instruments, installations
and live coding. In order to get familiar with building experimental new
instruments, interfaces and sound installations, the powerful SuperCollider audio
programming environment will be introduced. Others tools and frameworks are also
Control (OSC) protocol will be introduced in the context of networked
systems between different software, machines or geographical locations.
Participants will read key texts in the field and contextualise their
own practice within the theoretic and art-historic area in which they work.
Keywords: live coding, generative, extended instruments, sound synthesis, non-linear composition
Assessment Methods and Criteria
The course consists of lectures, demos, reading groups, and practical
work. In order to get credited, the student must complete a practical
hands-on personal project. This can take any form, as long as it relates to the course topic and fits the
background and interests of the participants. A strong element in the
seminar is theoretical and aesthetic reflections on the work produced
and analysed; students will be asked to read and participate in group
discussions on key academic papers on the field.
The workshop consists of lectures with case examples and tutored hands-on work. 36h teaching.
