With guest lecturers Brandon LaBelle, Åsa Stjerne and Buddhaditya Chattopadhyay
Course Module 2, June-July 2022
This course provides a hands-on and research-based approach to site-specific practices in sound. The course culminates in a project week wherein participant’s work is featured for the public at a four-day event at Acud.
Lecturers: Jeremy Woodruff and Katharina Bévand.
Cooperation: Singuhr’s Unexpected Territories Festival, Composers-Inside-Electronics artists John Driscoll and Phil Edelstein, and Michael Johnson
In this hands-on course the participants learn fundamental theory and approaches to modular synthesis while also learning the basics of electronics for building circuitry and synth modules. Assignments help the participants learn strategies for better achieving their artistic goals and structuring work. In the last two weeks of the course, approaches to composition, improvisation and performance with modular synthesis and built interfaces are workshopped and performed
55+ hours of seminars, workshops, talks, lessons and concerts, from expert practitioners and researchers including performance/ presentations by course participants in the Club Raum at Kunsthaus Acud in May. For singers, instrumentalists, composers, sound artists, researchers, musicologists, and rasikas alike.
This course provides a hands-on and research-based approach to performance and site-specific practices in sound. The course culminates in a project week wherein participant’s work is featured for the public at a two-day event at Acud and an exhibition at Errant Sound Project Space.
Learn to compose and notate effectively in a concert setting with synthesizers from renowned composer Misha Cvijović. Followed by a performance at the Acud Club alongside the artist.
These two intensive course units on AI music (Introduction to Terminal Usage and Python Programming & Python and Machine Learning for Audio) will allow you to start from the very basics of programming work your way up to receiving a hands-on training in creating sound through machine learning algorithms, Markov chains, Music Information Retrieval and training other types of machine learning routines on datasets. The course will feature an AI club night with Hexorcismos and Ktonal as well as an opportunity for you to have your own AI music premiered at the Acud Club alongside Ktonal.
