Live Electronics Workshop

Are you interested in working with live electronics? Join this 4 day workshop to develop techniques and tools for designing and performing with your own self-made instrument. There will also be a focus on sharing of ideas and experiences from all participants and of course a whole lot of jamming! The workshop will lead up to a joint live performance at the Santuri Salon on the last day.

The workshop will be led by interdisciplinary artist and producer Bernt Isak Wærstad (NO) and music acoustics researcher Alex Hofmann (AT). They will discuss their approach to live-electronic music performance, ranging from widely used software tools like Ableton Live to highly customised setups that use open source software (Csound, SuperCollider) and hand-crafted DIY interfaces with custom electronics. We will look at both laptop-based setups with custom developed VST plugins and hybrid setups with saxophone and custom software running on mini-computers like the Raspberry Pi.

During this workshop you will sharpen your existing skills, expand your repertoire in tools and approaches, discuss different perspectives on live-electronics with like minded artists, and be part of a showcase performance with both the workshop hosts and all participants to be presented at Santuri Salon.
