Event Details

Instructor: Carola Boehm

Title: Creativity in the Computer Music Curriculum

Topics/Keywords: creativity, computer music, software design, composition


Based on a paper written by the instructor considering the background and context of creativity training higher education computer music / music technology education.  The workshop explores ‘explicit education’ of different modes of creativity and different methodologies for initiating creative processes---this explicit awareness of creative methodology is not only important for professionals in the creative arts (composers, performing artists and art practitioners) but also for developers of tools that support creative processes (computer music scientists, music software developers).

The workshop will be a hands-on experience of theoretical, pedagogical and contextual aspects demonstrating how a series of short exercises can address the perceived lack of ‘explicit education’ of different modes of creativity and different methodologies for initiating creative processes. The exercises are based on educational practices from professionals from various disciplines, amongst them contemporary arts, music, sonic art, creative writing, business studies, architecture and physical theatre.

The workshop aims to demonstrate how many neglected alternative exist within the repertoire of human experience of artistic creation and is aimed at making individuals aware of the wide diversity of artistic methodology by using only the simplest of utensils (paper, pencils, erasers, coloured pens, squared paper, pennies, everyday object and space). The exercises address both groups of individuals, those who are ‘being trained’ to design tools for creative purposes, and others, who will use tools to create content in a creative context. Participants experience a greater critical awareness of

  • methodologies and techniques chosen to create something artistic
  • design of tools and processes for creative productions
  • understanding of creative processes in us humans
  • potential diversity of interaction between tools/processes and humans in the process of being creative.
