Liebe Freunde der Sound Studies,

ich freue mich sehr, Ihnen die nächste Sound Studies Lecture ankündigen zu können:

Montag – 21. Januar 2013 – 19:00 Uhr

Maximilian Marcoll

new kinds of modular music editing

quince introduces a new working paradigm that is independent from traditional technologies as the tape recorder and the mixing desk. In the course of the talk, M.Marcoll will explain the basic aesthetical concepts that lead to the development of quince and will present the design and the possibilities of his software.

quince is a program for editing time based data on the mac. Although quince was developed to serve musical purposes, theoretically, not only audio but video and every other time based data type can be edited in quince. Generally speaking, the main application for quince is the creation and editing of sequences of events in time.

The biggest difference between quince and the standard daw is that quince does not operate in the ‚tape recorder vs mixing desk‘-paradigm. In quince there are no channels in which audio data is arranged, and since there are no channels, there also is no need for a mixer to mix them. Instead, quince presents it’s contents in display strips which can contain arbitrary numbers of layers of data of any kind.

It’s flexible plug-in based structure allows for quince to be used in a great variety of applications from complex hierarchical event operations to graphical csound score editing to the translation into standard musical notation. furthermore, the api for creating custom quince plug-ins is kept small and powerfull, so that developing your own plug-ins for quince is pretty straight forward.

Maximilian Marcoll (*1981) studierte Schlagzeug, instrumentale und elektronische Komposition in Lübeck und Essen, lebt in Berlin. In seiner Werkreihe „Compounds“ (seit 2008) beschäftigt er sich mit der Transkription konkreter, meist aus dem persönlichen Alltag stammender Klänge und der Verbindung von Klangverläufen zu einem stückunabhängigen Material-Netzwerk. Teil der kompositorischen Arbeit ist auch die Entwicklung von Software, 2010 erfolgte die Veröffentlichung des Editors „quince“.
M.Marcoll ist Mitglied der Künstlergruppe stock11. Er lehrt in Düsseldorf und Berlin.

Maximilian Marcoll (*1981) studied percussion, instrumental and electronic composition in Lübeck and Essen, Germany. He lives in Berlin. In his series „Compounds“ (since 2008) he focusses on the transcription of concrete sounds, mostly recorded in everyday life situations, and the creation of a material network, on which the pieces of the series are based. The development of software also is a part of his compositional activities. In 2010, the software quince was released.
M.Marcoll is a member of the artist group stock11. He teaches in Berlin and Düsseldorf.

Was sind Sound Studies Lectures?
Die öffentlichen Sound Studies Lectures geben einen Einblick in die künstlerischen, wissenschaftlichen, gestalterischen und konzeptuellen Fragestellungen des postgradualen Masterstudiengangs Sound Studies.

Der Studiengang Sound Studies verfolgt die Idee eines fachübergreifenden und damit fächerverbindenden Studiums des Klangs. Ein Studium jenseits eines Musikstudiums, das aber dennoch die Musik nicht ausschließt, ist neu und einzigartig. Der Begriff Sound Studies ist angelehnt an den mittlerweile etablierten Terminus Cultural Studies: http://www.udk-berlin.de/soundstudies
