SuperCollider for absolute beginners. Learn the essentials of making synths, composing, and playing with SuperCollider
This is the second workshop of a beginner’s course in SuperCollider. SuperCollider is a free and open source sound and music language designed used by artists worldwide to realize sonic ideas. SuperCollider is supported by a large and helpful community, but despite this many beginners still find it hard knowing how to get started. The focus of this workshop series is to get you over that initial learning hump and into a place where you feel comfortable enough with SC to dive deeper on your own.
The workshop will take place in three evening sessions of four hours each, progressively covering topics such as building synths, composing and sequencing sound, and live performance using midi controllers and other electronic interfaces.
You must register to attend these workshops. Each session costs €25, which is payable on arrival. It is also possible to pay by credit card or paypal for all three workshops.
The course will be taught jointly by Marije Baalman and Tijs Ham.
