Live Coding Taster Session with Holger Ballweg
Sat, April 29, 2017, 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM BST
The Auxiliary is delighted to introduce the first workshop in our taster series. Over the following months we will be organising and hosting workshops that look at interesting and exciting new media tools that are used in the creation of audiovisual works and art practices.
First up we have Holger Ballweg providing a taster session on live coding. Holger is a live coder and programmer living in Newcastle Upon Tyne. Using the coding languages of Ixilang and supercollider, participants will learn how to live code the basics of sound and beat driven music while giving you the tools and knowledge to develop your own ideas, sounds and music outside of the workshop.
No previous knowledge of live coding or programming is necessary.
This event is open to everyone.
Participants must bring their own laptops.
Student concession tickets are available. Please contact email@example.com for more details.
A little about Holger Ballweg.
Holger Ballweg is a live coder and programmer living in Newcastle upon Tyne (UK).
After studying for an M.A. in Music Computing at Karlsruhe University of Music (Germany), he is now pursuing a PhD at Northumbria University looking into how turning data into sound (sonification) can help in scientific fields, particularly looking at applications in chemistry and sports science. He also teaches a sound design course to animation students at Northumbria.
He is a member of the live coding laptop band Benoît and the Mandelbrots, with whom he performed over 70 concerts in Germany and Europe. In 2012 Benoît and the Mandelbrots received an Honorary Mention
