Nicolas Collins: Workshop in Hardware Hacking
This is a workshop in hardware hacking for audio applications. No previous electronic experience is assumed. Basic soldering skills will be learned through building contact microphones and coils to sniff electromagnetic fields. We will then open up a range of battery-powered "consumer" technology (radios, boom boxes, electronic toys), observe the effect of direct hand contact on the circuit boards, experiment with the substitution of components, and listen to unheard signals running through the circuit.
Mapping the Vortex: Mapping and visualization with SuperCollider.
This intensive workshop by Marinos Koutsomichalis welcomes participants of any discipline who are already familiar with SuperCollider and who wish to expand their technical and practical knowledge in the fields of mapping and visualization.
The material of the workshop is based on the instructor’s latest book ‘Mapping and Visualization with SuperCollider’. Topics to be discussed and elaborated upon include: - 2D computer graphics - fractals - particle systems - complex encodings/mappings - audio/data analysis - waveform/spectra synthesis - sophisticated visualization/sonification techniques.
Following their particular interests, the participants will then be guided into designing their own audiovisual applications.
