Music Hackspace: Make Music with Code with Shelly Knotts

Thu 06 Sep 2018
18.30 - 21.00
New Wing

Learn to make music with code using SuperCollider. 

A powerful, open-source, cross-platform, audio engine and programming language, used not only to create music, but also for machine learning, audio/music reactive installations, performance, interactive systems, research, live-coding and much more. The workshop will be led by Shelly Knotts.

Requirements: Participants should bring a laptop (OSX / Windows/ Linux), and a pair of headphones. Please install SuperCollider in advance. It can be downloaded for free here.

Shelly Knotts produces live-coded and network music performances and projects which explore aspects of code, data and collaboration. Her experimental and collaborative tendencies have seen her engage with diverse musical practices and styles ranging from electroacoustic tape music to live-coded dance music. She performs internationally, collaborating with computers and other humans, and is part of the duo Algobabez with Joanne Armitage.

The venue is located on the ground floor of Somerset House and is fully wheelchair accessible with an accessible toilet. If you have any other access requirements, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate them.
