DATA-DRIVEN SOUND SYNTHESIS. SEMINAR ON SOUND SYNTHESIS INFORMED BY ANALYSIS DATA.

- led by Stefan Kersten and Wernfried Lackner -

19, 20 and 21 November at Hangar, Barcelona.

Content-based analysis techniques, i.e. synthesis techniques guided by the acoustical and perceptual properties of the source sound material, have been rapidly gaining ground in the sound and music computing community in the last decade. This workshop acknowledges the importance of these new techniques and aims at helping the participants to experiment with content-based techniques and laying a groundwork for further exploration.

We will start by introducing a framework that allows experimentation with content-based analysis and recomposition of sound segments stored in a database with only minimal programming knowledge. The occasional closer look will introduce more involved techniques and concepts such as musical feature extraction, concatenative synthesis and audio mosaicing. The focus will be on showing how various open source tools can be used productively in combination, allowing workflows that are not easily realizable with commercial applications.

We will be using our application environment Mescaline, which is based on the programming language Haskell, the sound synthesis environment SuperCollider and the feature extraction tool MeapSoft.

Stefan Kersten works as a researcher and sound artist in Barcelona, where he is pursuing a Phd at Pompeu Fabra University’s Music Technology Group. His main research interests are the synthesis and analysis of sound textures and the computational modeling of soundscapes. As a member of the col·lectives Zysk and Dissonoisex, Kersten is interested in the study of human communication strategies and also in the perceptual limits of interactive media. He is the author of the original port of SuperCollider to Linux.

Wernfried Lackner was born in Austria in 1970 and is currently living in Barcelona. He works a software developer, musician and media artist. His interests include (semi-)autonomous (musical) systems, human interaction and the processing and transformation of data. Wernfried is a member of Gullibloon, a Berlin-based collective of sound artists and software developers sharing an interest for the manipulation and visualization of data, as well as for algorithmic audiovisual creation.

cost: 90€ (cheaper in combination with other seminars, more info here: http://lullcec.org/?p=1641&lang=en)
