This workshop builds on and extends Fielding, a platform intended to facilitate inter-species music making developed by Till Bovermann for his Sonic Wilderness Interventions. Non-human performers influence Fielding by means of environmental sensors built into the nodes, whereas human performers shape its sonic qualities by forming sentences of a sonic alphabet.1
By using their laptops as nodes of a local Fielding network, participants of the workshop will get insights in how to co-create artificial soundscapes for found (un-)locations by means of textual and gestural interfaces.
Basic knowledge about electronic music practice with max/pd/supercollider is recommended since this workshop partly relies on live coding techniques and SuperCollider. However, such knowledge is not required.
Duration: 4 hours
This workshop relies partly on live coding techniques and SuperCollider.
