Online Jamming and Concert Technology
Today's vast amount of
streaming and video conferencing on the Internet lacks one aspect of
musical fun and that's what this course is about: high-quality,
near-synchronous musical collaboration. Under the right conditions,
the Internet can be used for ultra-low-latency, uncompressed sound
transmission. The course teaches open-source (free) techniques for
setting up city-to-city, studio-to-studio audio links. Distributed
rehearsing, production and split ensemble concerts are the goal.
Setting up such links and debugging them requires knowledge of network
protocols, network audio issues, mics, monitors and some ear
training. The course has two parts: a set of 7 in-class meetings will provide tips on software installation, testing, readings and offer related tutorials. A parallel 6-lesson online class, Online Jamming and Concert Technology, teaches the basics (covering fundamentals and hands-on practice). By completing both parts, students will be prepared to explore further interests with the instructor individually. Recent doctoral dissertations will be presented. Prerequisites are some coding skill at an introductory level and a musical instrument or vocals. The class can/should be combined with
The Electronic Orchestra: Exploring Concepts for Network Interaction 
Local Networks for Musical Interaction in Ensembles 
for the modules MSc-AKT 9 a/b/c.
