LIVE CODING WITH IMAGES AND SOUND INTENSIVE IN PERSON

No previous knowledge of programming is required. This intensive consists of 5 sessions: the first two covering how to live code with sound using Supercollider (https://supercollider.github.io/); the other two sessions will introduce live coding visuals with Hydra (https://hydra.ojack.xyz/). Culminates in the 5th session of Live Coding with Images and Sound with a collective jam session where you will be implementing the learned skills.  

Be introduced to sound and synthesis with Supercollider, which is an open-source environment for algorithmic composition and a programming language. You will be taught how to make your first synth with no previous knowledge of programming and/or synthesis required. Then you will write a program for generating patterns with Supercollider to perform with live-coding sounds and interact with visuals. Master how to live code colours and animated shapes on the fly in a web-based live coding environment called Hydra. Learn how to directly connect audio as a live source to manipulate your visual compositions while adding and exploring them creatively through the code. Draw on all the skills learnt in previous classes culminating in small cross-collaborative audio-visual jam sessions in the last session.

YOU WILL NEED TO BRING:

1. Your own laptop (windows, mac, linux) and a charger;  

2. Headphones;  

3. Download the Supercollider link, which you can find here: https://supercollider.github.io/downloads.html;

4. No need to download Hydra, but you can get familiar with some of its functionality here:

Biographies:

Kavi [Ilze Briede]

 Kavi [Ilze Briede] is a Latvian/Canadian artist and researcher with a broad cross- and inter-disciplinary practice that focuses on the phenomenon of perception and the constraints and boundaries between the senses and knowing. Kavi is currently pursuing a PhD in Digital Media at York University, intersecting art and science research areas such as bio-physiological sensing, computational creativity, and generative art.

Hrysovalanti Maheras

Hrysovalanti Maheras is a digital media art researcher and practitioner, who specializes in optoacoustic performances and kinetic installations. Currently, she is a doctoral student in Computational Arts at York University. She focuses her research and creation on how the devices of affective computing influence the design of intuitive technologies for human-machine and nonhuman collaborative improvisation in immersive stages.   https://hrysovalanti.github.io/Experiments/index.html
