— workshop with András Simongáti
— 12 SEPT. / 12:00-18:00 / FB EVENT
SuperCollider is an open-source and free software and programming language designed for a wide range of musical and sound related purposes: real-time digital signal processing, algorithmic compositions, sound installations, sound manipulation for electroacoustic performances, and much more.
This workshop is aimed at people who are interested — but perhaps never dared to ask — how to program simple patches in SC, if they’re curious how to create sound with a programming language designed specifically for this purpose, and in general, if they’ve been thinking about starting to learn a programming language but haven’t started yet. During a the workshop I go through how to set up your SuperCollider framework, introductory syntax and participants can get an insight into how this actually works in practice through some exercises that hopefully will get them hooked on the software and get their hands dirty!
Participation in the event is free, but you must register in advance.
Participating in the workshop doesn’t need to have any previous programming and coding knowledge!
** The workshop will be in English.
Participants should bring the following to the workshop:
– one laptop with one of the following operating systems on it: Windows 7, Windows 10, MacOSX 10.10 and higher. If they have other operating systems on their laptops, they should let me know in advance, so I can prepare a little bit.
– non-bluetooth headphones or headphones that can be physically connected to your laptop

Simongáti András, graduated at the Institute of Sonology in the Royal Conservatory The Hague, The Netherlands as well as at Social Sciences departments in Hungary and in the UK. Since then I had sight-specific sound installations exhibited at different exhibitions, art festivals. I also produced music and jingles for podcasts. However, I’m mostly focused on teaching and giving workshops. I was external lecturer at the Electronic Music and Media Studies department at University of Pécs, Hungary. I’m also co-founder of New Emergences Foundation that focuses on diversity in the field of sound art, electronic contemporary music through organizing residency-programs, panel-discussions and concerts in The Netherlands and other Northwestern-European countries.
