SuperCollider Workshop Get ready to get sucked into the supercollider vortex !! SuperCollider has established itself as probably the most powerful programming environment for real time sound synthesis, algorithmic/generative music and all sorts of other audio-related ap...plications. It is widely used by artists and scientists alike for both research and actual artistic creation. It features a powerful state-of-the-art sound engine and an easy to learn fully featured object oriented language. More, it is open-source and totally free of charge. This three day intensive workshop welcomes participants of any discipline with or without prior programming or musical experience and guides them to their first sounds, instruments and musical structures with supercollider. Apart from a thorough introduction to the Supercollider language and the synthesis server, the workshop aims to be an informal introduction to algorithmic/generative music, GUI design, live coding and digital sound synthesis with SuperCollider.
