SYNERGEIN PROJECT ACADEMY

There are already nine editions of our international academy, the first seven under the title of International Academy TDM “Trio of Magic,” in which we are demonstrating and strengthening our commitment to contemporary music, with training and its
diffusion.

Throughout three encounters percussion students will be able to attend classes, conferences, chamber music workshops of music technology, master-classes and concerts given by teachers and composers of the first international level in the current music.

Likewise, the concerts by the invited professors, holders and students are a unique opportunity for the general public to approach and to know a type of music that of normal has little presence in the schedules of the auditoriums.

The singularity of this place of meeting and exchange of ideas comes from the consideration of the global dimension and the transversality of its activities as the structural nucleus of the whole pedagogical-musical process.

 

THIS COURSE:

The Academy will be developed in three meetings on the following dates:

  • First meeting: December 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th of 2017.
  • Second meeting: February 16th, 17th and 18th of 2018.
  • Third meeting: April 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th of 2018.

MUSIC TECHNOLOGIC WORKSHOP: “Introduction to MaxMSP

Max / MSP is a graphic programming environment for music, audio and multimedia applications. This program was developed in the mid-eighties at IRCAM by Miller Puckette and subsequently implemented by David Zicarelli and Cycling’74, (the company that sells it since 1997). There are many professionals who use this program, creating customized tools for composition, sound design, live performances and audiovisual installations.
Max is used for composition, creation and design of interactive programs with music and multimedia. It has much flexibility for interaction with a variety of media, protocols and interfaces.
This workshop presents the main objectives of making contact with the user-level program and assimilation of basic concepts of programming in that environment applied to the interaction with acoustic i digital instruments.
At the end of the workshop, the participants will develop a customized project that will serve, as a practice, for an improvisation session.

 

WORKS PLAYED DURING THE COURSE

During that course we will have the opportunity of working a Monograph concert for peercussion by composer Carola Bauckholt with the following works:

  • In Gewohnter Umgebung I (for percussion duo and diapositives)
  • Geräusche (for percussion duo)

MUSIC TECHNOLOGIC WORKSHOP: “Introduction to MaxMSP

Introduction to basic theoretical concepts related to the creation and realization of interactive systems for art through the practical realization of an audiovisual interactive work.

In this course-laboratory theoretical and practical-methodological aspects will be presented in the ideation and concrete realization of projects that involve a specific relationship between person and device. Each theoretical aspect will be connected to the practical realization to allow a direct assimilation of the causes and consequences of each concept and problem.

Complete or partial interaction systems will be built with the use of a series of sensors, from those most present in daily life, to specific technologies and perhaps unique in their kind, as is the case of Kinect and LeapMotion.

Language:
Spanish

Concepts

    – Interaction: functions and utility
    – Multisensory perception and multisensory representation
    – Linearity and no-linearity
    – Action and reaction; feedback as interaction

Laboratory

    – Ideation of a flow diagram
    – Hardware and software technology
    – The mediator: Sensor in practice
    – Collective creation of an interactive work that includes all the arguments of the meeting

MUSIC TECHNOLOGIC WORKSHOP: “Mixed electroacoustic music: the performer and the technological challenges

The combination of traditional instruments with media such as tape, electronic devices, live signal processing, video, etc. is considered mixed music.
Although composers write more and more works for this genre and mixed electroacoustic works are more often programmed in contemporary music concerts, the training of musicians for the performance of mixed works is not well developed in the institutions of music. When a graduate student of a Bachelor Conservatory graduates, generally, he is very prepared to face the traditional repertoire of his instrument, and little or nothing to do it with technological medium.
A musician of this time, should be trained to explore the new sound possibilities offered by new technologies and face, with no fear, any musical proposal that includes electronic-musical media.
This workshop is dedicated to the acquisition of knowledge of techniques and strategies that favor the relationship between the instrumental gesture and the electroacoustic matter as well as the operation and basic configuration of the technological resources: mixer, microphones, midi controllers, sensors, loudspeakers, sound cards and most used programs such as MaxMSP, Soundcool, PD and others.

Temary:

    1. Electroacoustic music
    2. Performer set of mixed music:

a. Mixerb. Cablesc. Microphonesd. Speakerse. Sound cardf. Controllers

    3. Digital Audio basic skills
    4. Introduction to Midi
    5. Software: score editor, audio editor, sequencers, MaxMSP, Supercollider, Pure Data, Qlab and qwertyGO.
    6. Introduction to Soundcool system. Collaborative project.
