Live Stage: mode +v noise workshop [de Berlin]

goto102.jpgmode +v noise, a workshop with GOTO10 :: October 16 – 17, 2009; 2:00 – 12:00 p.m. :: micro_research, pickledfeet, Linienstrasse 54, Berlin 10119 :: email m [at] to reserve a place (strictly limited to 8).

mode +v noise is a project of GOTO10, a collective of international artists and computer programmers. It is based on IRC, the oldest text-based Internet chat environment. This intervention will transform an IRC chat room/channel into a simple, collaborative, text-based online system for making music. Since IRC allows chat bots — computer programs that pretend to be human conversation partners — we will program such a bot to create a collective musical composition environment based on Internet chats. In this workshop, participants will explore two parts of the project: designing sound generators in Supercollider that they can control via a simple IRC bot written in Python. The workshop is taught by Aymeric Mansoux and Jan-Kees van Kampen from GOTO10.

PREREQUISITES: This workshop is aimed to beginners, no previous knowledge is required but a basic understanding of computers and an unconditional love for command line and text based interfaces is

To bring:
* bring your own Laptop (PC based, macbook/mactel, recent imac, etc. We can’t provide support for PPC
based Mac such as the old G3-4-5-…)
* bring your own headphones

==== Day 1 ====

* 14:00 – 15:00: hands on demo of the “/mode +v noise” platform and experiment, using the Puredyne GNU/Linux live distro.

* 15:00 – 17:00: Intro to Supercollider’s project botsynth, how to change patterns and synths, explanation of different hardcoded synthdef (from super simple, to more complicated examples).

* 17:00 – 17:30: break

* 17:30 – 19:50: make your own synth + play it through chat using local default bot

* 19:50 – 20:00: vote for the best synthdef and win a pack of stropwaffel

==== Day 2 ====

* 12:00 – 13:00: python crash course

* 13:00 – 15:00: reviewing the IRC bot features including OSC, IRC and mode+v classes

* 15:00 – 15:30: break

* 15:30 – 17:50: pimp your bot by combining existing code or writing your own

* 17:50 – 18:00: vote for the best bot and win a pack of stropwaffel

The workshop will be followed by performances at General Public, Schönhauser Allee 167c:

About GOTO10

GOTO10 aims to support and grow digital art projects and tools for artistic creation, located on the blurry line between software programming and art. GOTO10’s members have backgrounds in visual arts, sound art, music technology, physical computing and programming. They have worked around the theme of FLOSS+Art since 2003, using performances, workshops, installations, print, and code repositories as
their medium.
