SuperCollider workshop “Good looking sounds” by Fredrik Olofsson

Saturday, 31.03.2012, 11.00 – 19.00 (with break) @ LEAP Berlin

The edition of BC#3 marks the start of the BodyControlled WORKSHOPS,
with the SuperCollider workshop “Good looking sounds” by Fredrik
Olofsson, taking place March 31st.

A one day workshop by Fredrik Olofsson about generating strange
graphics in the audio programming language SuperCollider. The idea is
to not care much about how the code we write actually sounds or works,
but rather that it looks cool graphically. We will deliberately
perform odd math operations to mess up the audio signals and explore
and abuse the scope, plot and post windows as well as draw custom
waveforms and spectrograms.

The level of the workshop will not be too advanced and there is no
need to be a fluent SuperCollider programmer to make interesting
visuals. Bring your own headphones and a laptop with SuperCollider
(3.4 or 3.5, http://supercollider.sourceforge.net/) installed. If you
have trouble installing this software please come half an hour early
and we will help. Workshop language is english.

Please send an email until 27.03.2012 with subject „Good Looking
sounds“ to workshops@leapknecht.de.
The number of participants is limited to 15 places. The participation
fee is 25€ per person and must be paid by 29.03.2012 at the latest.
After e-mail registration you will receive an email with payment

The third edition of the BodyControlled series presents a group of
performing artists using diverse feedback procedures as a motor for
their performance work.
Known mostly as the result of an audio loop between a microphone and a
speaker, feedback can be a powerful and dynamic creative tool in both
visual and sound performances. Each of the artists in BodyControlled
#3 uses feedback in a personal way (and at a different level in the
processing chain) to either shape their sounds and images, or to
create a – relatively – controlled dialogue between them and their
