New Modular Modular Synthesizer and Larry Whelan Seminar Composition

Event details

Composition, seminar by Larry Whelan, nowadays we are used to using computers for many musical tasks, but always with a tradition-oriented approach: recording software that emulates real recording studios, sequencing and notation software that enable composition techniques and songwriting traditional. The seminar examines alternative methods for composing with technology – interactive systems, adaptive, generative music, procedural and algorithmic composition – and looks to the future of composition in video games, virtual reality and other commercial applications.

The workshop will be held by Larry Whelan and will be followed by a conceptual live installation/performance called Cold Waves. The project was originally performed in Berlin as part of MTFBerlin 2016 and is a live set of electronic music inspired by the fears of those who grew up during the Cold War. Original transcripts of actual coded messages broadcast over the radio during the Cold War (courtesy of The Conet Project) will be encoded into a live music performance using Larry's specially developed MAX-MSP patch/enigma device.
