>workshops
>
>The Super Collider workshop will cover most of
>the aspects of this audio design software. It
>will go from simply generating a sine tone and
>playing back samples in different ways to
>creating a complex user interface for a complete
>software-instrument. The teacher is San
>Francisco resident composer and musician Roddy
>Schrock
>(<http://www.fundamentallysound.org>http://www.fundamentallysound.org/).
>The workshop will be held during the
>summerschool on every weekday from 9h to 13h,
>divided into different levels:
>
>* June 13 through 16 - beginners symposia, very
>open-arms approach, focusing on basic concepts;
>basic knowledge about midi and digital audio is
>required
>* June 17, 20 & 21 - intermediate symposia,
>focusing on more advanced concepts, real life
>applications, GUI development, and live
>performance use with MIDI controllers
>* June 22 & 23 - network symposia, for
>intermediate and advanced users, culminating in
>a piece for realtime performance
>* June 24 - performance day and last minute questions
>
>The LiSa X workshop will cover most features of
>STEIM's live sampling software. It is ment for
>beginners as well as more advanced users, for
>composers and musicians as well as installation
>makers and visual artists. The teacher is
>electronic musician and composer Robert van
>Heumen
>(<http://hardhatarea.com>http://hardhatarea.com).
>The workshop will be held every weekday from 14h
>to 18h. The different levels are:
>
>* June 13 & 14 - beginners; basic knowledge
>about midi and digital audio is required
>* June 15, 16, 17, 20, 21 - advanced LiSa -
>looking more closely into patterns, modulators,
>realtime effects
>* June 22 & 23 - expert features - two
>afternoons with expert users showing their
>setups and some historic background on LiSa
>* June 24 - performance day and last minute questions
>
>Registration can be done only through the STEIM

>Florian Grote, Andreas Otto (Pingipung, Germany)
>- Developing a live interaction model for cello
>and computer (Pure Data)
>Wednesday june 15 at 20:00h (also open to
>non-workshop-participants - entrance
>Utrechtsedwarsstraat 13)
>
>Florian Grote and Andreas Otto from the German
>Pingipung label have been working at STEIM to
>develop a software instrument which is solely
>controlled by the sound of a cello. The tool,
>constructed in Pure Data, 'listens' to what the
>cellist plays and converts the rich amount of
>timbral and dynamic information to control data
>utilizing methods of pitch detection, volume-,
>and time-analysis. In this manner a duet of the
>mechanical and the digital instrument is
>evolving, capable of a variety of expressions;
>generating sounds that reach from a bleepy
>unisono voice to ambient pads and stumbling
>feedback-cascades. The digital instrument turns
>the cellist into a listener as well, thus human
>and computer logic as musical means control one
>another.
>Working with Pure Data as an upcoming open
>source utility, the lecture of the two musicians
>will be discussing the programming methods
>transparently, including a multichannel live
>demonstration. The target of the project is to
>use the instrument for different kinds of
>compositions and to make it available to other
>musicians, on practically all instruments, on
>all platforms.
>
>STEIM history and instrumental electronics by Michel Waisvisz
>Friday june 17 from 16:00h to 18:00h
>Michel will talk about the history of STEIM,
>which is very much connected with the history of
>live electronic music, and the development of
>LiSa, junXion and STEIM's sensor interfaces.
>
>LiSa expert afternoon with Frank Baldé & Daniel Schorno
>Wednesday june 22 from 14:00h to 18:00h
>Frank and Daniel will show expert features of
>LiSa and junXion, from the perspective of the
>programmer and the performer.

>Local Stop concert with
>Tim Perkis & Scot Gresham-Lancaster (mini-hub)
>Roddy Schrock & Robert van Heumen (the duo)
>Thursday june 23 at 20:30h
>
>Tim Perkis & Scot Gresham-Lancaster are both
>part of the Hub. They will visit STEIM as a
>break in the Hub's activities in Berlin.
>'The League of Automatic Music Composers and The
>Hub were two of the first ensembles to
>investigate the unique potentials of computer
>networks as a medium for musical composition and
>performance. Both groups came about as
>associations of computer music composers who
>were also designers and builders of their own
>hardware and software instruments. Their
>approach to the computer music medium was
>strongly do-it-yourself, a characteristic common
>both to the electronic technology community of
>the San Francisco Bay Area, and the experimental
>instrument-building tradition of Harry Partch,
>John Cage, and David Tudor. They approached the
>computer network as a large, interactive musical
>instrument in which the data-flow architecture
>linked independently programmed automatic music
>machines, producing a music that was noisy,
>surprising, often unpredictable, and was
>definitely more than the sum of its parts.'

>Workshop teachers Robert van Heumen and Roddy
>Schrock will show some of the possibilities of
>Super Collider and LiSa in a short performance.
>Ranging from sonic bursts to gregorian chants,
>from melodic melancholy to funny voices, from
>the abstract to the concrete.
>
>Roddy Schrock is a composer who digitally mines
>the sounds of the everyday for the profound, and
>the glitzy, rough edges of pop music for its
>articulate immediacy. He has lived and worked in
>Tokyo, The Hague, New York, and San Francisco,
>with performances in the Czech Republic,
>Holland, Japan, and North America. In his live
>performances Schrock finds the underlying
>essence of music by first hacking found sound to
>microscopic bleeps, next rearranging the shards,
>then fusing them into a new inorganic whole and
>finally realigning the synthetic and the natural.
>
>Robert van Heumen is a musician and composer of
>electronic music, who is very active in the
>Amsterdam improv scene. Being part of the N
>Collective he played with OfficeR (an
>electro-acoustic sextet searching for structures
>in improvised music) in Berlin, Norway,
>Amsterdam, and recently he did a tour with SKIF
>(an all-electronic set with Jeff Carey) in New
>York City. Both his composed and live music can
>be described as a mixture of toys, environmental
>sounds, voices and melancholic melodies, all
>blended with a certain kind of crackle and burst.
