This workshop is a practical introduction to live sound creation and manipulation using the (Free / Libre / Open Source) SuperCollider programming language / environment. Through a series of lectures, hands-on exercises, and question and answer sessions, participants will be introduced to the fundamental building blocks of sound, and the means for manipulating them within SuperCollider. [The three sessions will cover additive, subtractive, and modulation synthesis techniques, recording, playing back and manipulating sound signals in real time, and strategies for creating and maintaining a personal library of reusable code, as well as an overview of the SuperCollider language and environment.] This workshop is aimed at artists and musicians; no prior programming experience or knowledge of sound synthesis is required.
