Current Edgard-Varèse Guest Professor, Chris
Chafe, and the Electronic Studio at TU Berlin present an
evening focusing on networking and network technologies in musical
contexts. The event will feature works by Chris Chafe, such as
Tomato Music (2007-2011), Harbour Symphony (2016-20) and Gnosisong
(2015, with Greg Niemeyer). Jonathan Berger will present his audiovisual work Eroded Landscapes (2019), Daniel Mayer premieres Matters #5 (2020, UA). The audience will be involved in a work for mobile phones by Alexander Dubovoy and Greg Kappes. A novel system for local network performances, developed at the
TU Studio, will be used for improvisations by TU Students, Leonard Nicola Hein (guitar), S. Rose (sax) and Chris Chafe (Celletto) and the Electronic Orchestra Charlottenburg (EOC).
Seminar: Unorthodox Sound Synthesis (Daniel Mayer)
Tuesday, 11.02.20 -
Thursday, 13.02.20, 18:00-21:00, Room EN-324
The topic of the seminar will be selected procedures that don’t fall into the area of classical sound synthesis resp. transformation as well as unorthodox combinations and applications of classical techniques. In that context participants will be encouraged to develop and implement own ideas.
Possible topics (depending on knowledge and interest): buffer modulation, single sample feedback, wavefolding, synthesis with ordinary differential equations, functional iteration synthesis, variants of granular synthesis.
Requirements: Basic knowledge of sound synthesis. The seminar refers to some of the lecturer's implementations in SuperCollider, therefore basic knowledge of SuperCollider is desirable but not absolutely necessary.
Language: German or English
TU students can get 3 credit points for the module "Musikinformatik+Medienkunst" in combination with a project related to the seminar.
