Software Workshop – Making Music with Code, with Shelly Knotts
Learn the basics of setting up a live coding session and making soundscapes and beats with sound synthesis and patterns in SuperCollider.
SuperCollider is an incredibly powerful, open-source, cross-platform, audio engine and programming language, used not only to create music, but also for machine listening, audio/music reactive installations, performance, interactive systems, research, live-coding and much more.
Requirements: You will need your own computer (OSX / Windows/ Linux), and a pair of headphones.
Shelly Knotts produces live-coded and network music performances and projects which explore aspects of code, data and collaboration. Her experimental and collaborative tendencies have seen her engage with diverse musical practices and styles ranging from electroacoustic tape music to live-coded dance music. She performs internationally, collaborating with computers and other humans.
She is studying for a PhD in Live Computer Music at Durham University. Past affiliations include BEAST (Birmingham ElectroAcoustic Sound Theatre) and SOUNDkitchen. Her work is published on Chordpunch record label, Absence of Wax netlabel and in Leonardo Music Journal. She has received commissions and residencies from PRSF and Sound and Music.
Current projects include network laptop bands BiLE and OFFAL (Orchestra For Females And Laptops) and live coding performance [Sisesta Pealkiri] with Alo Allik.
