Day 1: SuperCollider Beginner Crash Course Workshop
SuperCollider is an environment and programming language for real time audio synthesis and algorithmic composition. It provides an interpreted object-oriented language which functions as a network client to a state of the art, realtime sound synthesis server.
This workshop introduces SuperCollider (SC) to new users through a hands on approach. With a focus on creating sounds from the start, beginners can experience the possibilities and advantages of SC. The aim of the workshop is that the participants get started on how to use SC and will be able to delve deeper into it by themselves more easily.
