Sound and Music Computing
Dr Charles Martin
two big goals:
learning to make sound with code on laptop computers
learning to create computer music in a group
who are we?
Senior Lecturer, ANU School of Computing
computer musician, percussionist
SMCCLAB: Sound, Music, and Creative Computing Lab
PhD researcher, ANU School of Computing
AR musician, photographer
how does this work?
Learn and experiment with computer audio in the lecture.
learn about digital synthesis and computer music in Pd
reinforce and extend your knowledge by live-coding in Gibber
There will be new material and challenges every week.
Level up music computing skills in the workshop.
a workshop each week for collaboration and critique
create and discuss 10 short computer music pieces over the semester
This is the fun part: an open environment where you will work together to make music from week 1.
Collaborate and perform in the ANU LENS (laptop ensemble).
work with an ensemble of 4-5 students
everybody creates a computer music work to perform at their final concert
After 12 weeks of tinny laptop speakers, playing on a big PA system will blow your mind.
Look at the assessments page or the class summary.
Look at the workshop content well before the workshop.
Record a short piece of computer music following the weekly provocations, upload by Monday.
There are solo and group diaries.
Watching & discussing diary videos is half of what we do in the workshop time.
Show up: Seriously, this course doesn’t work if you are not here.
The only rule is work (rule 7): this means, do your weekly diary videos!
Trust us to help you succeed: We have all the resources needed for you to create a great performance, just like all the previous LENSers who were just like you!
Read the website for more info.
Every submission you make has a place for references.
You must provide at least two references
You must reference any code/ideas taken from other places (internet, books, classmates)
You must use ACM referencing format, look on the assessment pages for examples.
This is about integrity: respect for your sources and your classmates.
