This workshop will provide an introduction to sound synthesis and the
creation of autonomous and interactive music systems. The workshop will
examine what happens when we return to the sounds of classic subtractive
and FM synthesis but subsitute the common MIDI interface (which is
structured around traditional Western notions of music) for an
alternative system. While there will still be control over the basic
parameters of synthesis, this new approach will change the way we create
and structure the music and lead us towards new aesthetic outcomes. The
workshop will combine the use of the open source software Pure Data with
new software created specifically for this workshop.
- Techniques for generative composition and sound synthesis
- New interfaces to structuring sound in reaction to traditional
Western musical notions
- Evaluation and discussion of the interactions between the artist, the
technology used and musical aesthetics
Level: Beginners. Although some familiarity with sound synthesis is
welcome, no previous programming experience or knowledge of PureData is
Tutor: Theo Burt
Theo Burt (b.1979, Falmouth, UK) works with computer sound, video and
light, drawing on the perceptual relationships between sound and image
and exploring the aesthetic application of technology.
