Introduction to SuperCollider

Software: SuperCollider
Instructor: Luis Sanz
Experience level: Beginner
Duration: from 6 hours to 2 days.

This workshop is designed for beginners and those interested in sound and experimentation. No prior programming experience is necessary, but a basic understanding of digital audio is required to successfully use SuperCollider.

Participants will explore the qualities of stochastic synthesis, learn to control and adjust the algorithm, and create their own musical instrument with a user interface for live performance.

At the end of the workshop, all participants will take part in a free improvisation session, aiming to perform like a computer noise orchestra.

*Stochastic Processes
- Collection of random variables indexed by time.
- Probability distribution over a space of paths.
