ICMC Workshops (By Date)

May 30th, June 6th, and June 7th | 12 – 3pm [CONCERT 8pm @ The Tank on June 7th]
Location: The Tank NYC
Title: Kids and Contact Mics
Instructor: Joe Mariglio

Description:

Students will participate in a series of interactive workshops that will elaborate on each other until their completion. The first stage establishes a foundation in a few of the technical and creative aspects of sound-making, while the second stage focuses on compositional strategies and collaborative performance. The empowering process of discovery underlies every section of the program, as the young participants establish an active role with the everyday technology that pervades their lives. Rudimentary physics and mathematics will be applied to the cooperative craft of composition and improvisation. All workshops will be replete with examples and live demonstrations to provide a launch pad for the students to explore their everyday environment with new tools of discovery, driven by their imagination.

Day 1: Amplification and Feedback
Day 2: Listening, Processing, and Playing
Day 3: Final Concert!

Title: Creativity in the Computer Music Curriculum
Instructor: Carola Boehm

Description:

Based on a paper written by the instructor considering the background and context of creativity training higher education computer music / music technology education. The workshop explores ‘explicit education’ of different modes of creativity and different methodologies for initiating creative processes—this explicit awareness of creative methodology is not only important for professionals in the creative arts (composers, performing artists and art practitioners) but also for developers of tools that support creative processes (computer music scientists, music software developers).

June 6th 10am – 1pm
Location: SUNY Stony Brook | Staller Music Building | Room 3367
Title: Pure Data Object Programming
Instructor: Tom Erbe and Cooper Baker

Description:

This workshop will demonstrate the programming techniques used to create custom external objects that extend the Pure Data (PD) environment. The workshop will begin with introductory information about integrated development environment settings for compiling and installing objects. Next, PD object structure, data types, and specific programming style will be covered as well as techniques for passing various types of messages like numbers, symbols, and lists to and from PD objects. After discussing the different types and attributes of an object’s messaging inlets and outlets, an introduction to audio objects and digital signal processing in PD will be presented. Signal inlets and outlets will be covered, then simple oscillator and filter examples will be used to expose the fundamental signal processing techniques at work in PD objects.
